She worked as an art director in New York City for more than 25 years, also designing and selling jewelry and other art pieces when time allowed. Eager to expand her creative offerings, she launched Fyne Lyne Ventures (www.fynelyne.com), a full-service Web site and graphic design marketing firm, in 2006. Her first offerings for YogaBright.com shoppers are handmade art cards graced with the site’s sunflower signature.
