/ MY STORY
I had a fulfilling career as a Creative Director in corporate America but left that world to pursue my dream of working full time as artist. I felt it was a true calling and has never looked back. Now I am busy showing my work throughout Bay Area at art festivals, creating unique commission pieces, as well producing a retail product line. I also teach painting, art journaling and vision board classes to kids and adults in my art studio. My favorite art mediums that I currently use are acrylics and watercolor paints.
My acrylic paintings are a blend of abstract art and realism, and my technique is one of a fluid, intuitive style. Many layers are created by lines and marks, as well as various tools and paints.
I love to draw, paint and create colorful art every day. I am happiest getting lost in the process of the details and layers that make up my art. I work with colors that make me happy - reminiscent of the beauty that is all around us. Just every day simple beauty. Orange and pink, turquoise and red. They are magical when painted together.
I currently live in Santa Cruz, CA with my husband, 3 teenage boys and yellow lab, Scout and sweet cat Basil. The sea is an endless source of wonder and imagination for me which is probably why my favorite color is blue. While the mild seasons by the beach give me endless amount of floral inspiration from all the beautiful gardens. I feel like I am living my dream and grateful to be able to share my passion with you.
