I have always done some sort of art, starting in grammar school.  As life happens, I grew up, started a family and career and put all the art on hold. 

In 1998 I got really sick and went undiagnosed until 2001.  Unable to work any longer, I finally got a diagnoses of Multiple Sclerosis.  My professional career ended, and the kids were grown and out of the house.  I picked up a paint brush, took a class and I firmly believe that ART saved my life.  

Today I create daily, with watercolor, pastels, pen and inks, alcohol based inks, acrylics, collage,oils and cold was,  and my doodle work.

I teach workshops in Alcohol Ink Pours, and Doodle Art.

I was born and raised in the San Joaquin Valley and love the opportunities that the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Central Coast and the deserts of California, have to offer for creation.
