While studying at Middlebury College Daryl discovered printmaking. The creation of handmade multiples appealed to both her artistic and practical sensibilities. After college she read an article about Sabra Field in Vermont Life and it mentioned that Sabra hired an assistant every year. Daryl wrote to her, interviewed, and 6 months later was working in her studio, learning about woodcuts and the business of art. After her apprenticeship, she went to U. Mass, Amherst, where she earned a masters degree in printmaking while focusing on lithography and teaching art to undergraduates.

Returning to Vermont, Daryl continued teaching and making prints as well as waitressing to pay the bills. She started to make earrings and sold them to customers when they saw her wearing them in the restaurant. This began the jewelry business and thankfully ended her waitressing career.

In 1987 Daryl became a member of Vermont Hand Crafters. She has played an intricate part in the growth of our organization. She has participated in every show since becoming a member, the first three years at Memorial Auditorium and moving to the Sheraton for the next 27 years. During this time, Daryl served on the Board of Directors as co-chair for the jury with Carol Feierabend. (Firerobin Puppets).

Daryl's work is a reflection of the landscape she experiences every day. Furrowed fields, local farms, Camel's Hump, Lake Champlain, and the Adirondacks are just a few places she draws on a regular basis. These vistas become one-of-a-kind pastels, block prints, and hand painted lithographic jewelry.

Whether it is a large framed wall piece or a one-inch circular pin, Daryl strives to communicate the beauty of the natural landscape.
