I create art to connect with my true essence. It cuts through the societal programming, expressing itself through me in a joyful way. It allows me to let go of control and surrender to the painting. As a recovering perfectionist I choose to work in mixed media using collage and acrylic because it’s forgiving. I love bold colors, geometric shapes and text which come alive with whimsy on wood panels and paper. I am happiest when I am drawing outside the lines on the canvas and in life. My work was recently selected for the DeYoung Museum Open and is now available to purchase or rent through the SFMOMA Artists Gallery in Fort Mason. It is on display for purchase at Sloan Miyasato at the SF Design Center located at 2 Henry Adams Street #300 in San Francisco or for purchase through Chandra Cerrito Art Advisory or at my studio.

I have always been creative and have applied my creativity to building businesses, professional cooking and art. I am a self-taught artist with a full-time focus on my art practice. My work has been featured on CBS News in San Diego and in the Marin IJ. When I am not in the studio painting, I consult for my former business, Parties That Cook which inspires connection through group cooking. I also contribute recipes bi-monthly to the San Jose Mercury News Food Section. I am an avid gardener and my garden, home and art are featured on Houzz and Houzz TV. I hold a Masters in Intuition Medicine from the Academy of Intuition Medicine and use these skills to create art that feels good!
