My creative impulses take different paths, please take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about my art. I hope you enjoy my site and take a moment to drop me a line.
I think everyone in my family had some interest in art or crafts. I got started early having been influenced by my older brother. I was also encouraged to engage in art by my mother who liked that it kept me quiet. I made my first sale in grade school, selling crafts and then oil paintings.
I use many different mediums, such as clay, acrylics, and watercolors. I would say mixed media is my current direction on a mostly flat surface. But I also create jewelry, do some sculpture, love photography and my greatest passion is re-imaging fashion dolls into fairies and mermaids.
My greatest influence is my love of the ocean.
I spent my summers mostly on the beaches of Southern California and at least one week a year at Coronado beach in Mexico. I would spend my time drawing, painting, researching, reading and falling in love with the sea.
