Painting is what I do to keep myself centered, happy, at peace. I feel compelled to keep striving to improve my skills and to continue to grow as an artist. I feel lucky to have a studio and the time to pursue my quest. I enjoy the challenge of plein air painting, but enjoy time in my studio exploring other subjects and playing with surrealism. Drawing and painting the human figure is a calling also. Come by and see my work and have a conversation about art.
I attended college at the University of South Florida, (B.A. Fine Art/ Art Education).
Soon after graduating I came to San Francisco were I met my husband Brian. We raised 2 girls in Novato while I taught art classes at various locations and finally at the Novato Art Center in the MOCA classroom.
Now I concentrate on my own studio art and on being a grandma to my 4 grandchildren.
