I left a position in marketing and business development of an architectural firm specializing in children's hospitals, to be at home raising my children. After twenty years and two grown boys, I continue as a freelance writer, illustrator and mixed-media artist. After being sidelined by breast cancer in 2015, I am happy to have my energy, creativity and life back! The act of making art everyday and the power of bold, vibrant colors is what helped me through. I hope my work empowers others with colorful hope, joy, and confidence! Currently accepting art commissions and writing/illustration projects.
