My paintings are exhibited throughout Southern California and my works are held in private, corporate collections and recently in John Wayne Airport.
As a kid I recall wanting to stay inside and draw instead of go outside and to play. Art was my passion as long as I can remember. I grew up in Southern California and was known in school as “The kid that could draw”. I studied art and design in college then, worked for Southern California adversing agencies. Following that I started a design firm and was awarded fortune 500 corporate accounts but my heart wasn't in it. So I started studying painting with a total of 6 master painters. I took a piece of what I learned from each, arriving at my own signature, style and then started painting and full time.
For the past 14 years I’ve lived in Huntington Beach, California with my husband, 10 year old son and French bull dog, painting florals, butterflies and landscapes. I paint abstraction realism, starting with a photo then creating a dream like scene using bold color, bold brush strokes and big design. I paint a magical celebration of the wonders of nature. My goal is for the viewer to leave a bit happier than when they came :)
