About

In 1996, I left a marketing and business development position in architecture to be home with my children. Twenty two years later, I continue as a mixed media artist, writer and cancer survivor. The act of making art everyday and the power of bold, vibrant colors is what helped me through it. I now strive to encourage and empower others with my work.  I’m most fulfilled when I hear that my artwork brings happiness and joy.
