I'm a happy artist working in cyanotype, mixed media collage, and watercolor in my sunny Sacramento studio.

At an early age I discovered an affinity for art. I've always loved to make things and with guidance from my artistic father I developed a strong foundation. I studied Art at CSU Chico where I received a BA with an emphasis in drawing and painting. After graduation I stayed in Chico and studied graphic design and illustration.

After a twenty-year career in printing, graphic design, and illustration, I was ready for a change and decided to become a school teacher. In 1998 I earned my teaching credential and began sharing my artistic passion with students. I also hold a master’s degree in the Arts in Education.

Currently, I work as a full time studio artist. I love to share my work at shows, studio events, and online (especially Instagram!) I also teach small groups in my Sacramento studio or around the country. Subscribe to my newsletter to see what I'm up to!
