Born and raised in Carmel, Calif., I spent my teen years on Cape Cod, Mass. Busy raising four kids as a single mom in Spokane, Wash., it wasn't until my last one was a senior in high school in 2006 that I discovered a talent waiting to be expressed. With no formal art training, I use my everyday surroundings to study the interplay of light and color.
Discovering new colors, whether replicating nature or embellishing on it, is a constant source of inspiration for me. I have a passion for bringing bright bold colors and richly textured strokes to the canvas.
My work is currently being shown at:
The Mole Hole, Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA
Simply Wood Studios, Waikiki, Oahu (3 locations)
The Gallery of Arts & Culture, Crescent City, CA
