Raised in St. Croix from age of four. Daughter of late portrait artist Betsy Voytershark so was introduced to painting at a young age. Was tutored by Bud ( Charles ) Hawes among other lively island artists like Susie Brown and Conrad Knowles.

Love using strong tropical colors with an impressionistic feel.
