I moved to Colorado with my husband from Northern California in 1997. We love Boulder and feel so happy and lucky to live here. I spend my creative work days in a studio adjacent to our home. The incredible colors, light and textures of the landscape here always inspire me and influence my work.
I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with an emphasis in Printmaking from Dominican University in San Rafael, California. I went on to work as a Digital Painter on motion pictures and commercials at Industrial Light +Magic, the special effects division of LucasFilm.
For the past 18 years, I’ve devoted myself to my art, painting both representational works and abstracts. For the last several years, I have focused solely on my first love, abstract expressionism. My creative voice continues to grow in new and different ways using acrylic paint, collage, ink, crayon and whatever else I can get my hands on.
My studio partner is a sassy and beautiful Dutch Shepherd named, Maisie. She keeps a steady eye on me and the studio and always adds entertainment and laughter to my days!
Other things about me: I love...dogs, hiking in the mountains, pistachio ice cream, indie movies, anything Italian, art museums/galleries, a good glass of chardonnay and cool autumn days.
"The abstraction is often the most definite
form for the intangible thing in myself that I
can clarify in paint". - Georgia O'Keeffe
