Minetti received her MA in Art from Arizona State University, Tempe, and her BA in Art from Rutgers University, Trenton, New Jersey. Her work is a rediscovery of abstraction with a tacit reference to reality, involving the environment, both the physical and ethereal. She uses abstraction to interpret her mental, physical, and spiritual environment. Minetti has work in the public collections of the City of Yuma, Arizona State University, and McDonald's Corporation; and in private collections in New York, New Jersey, Maryland, California, New Mexico, Wisconsin, and Arizona.
