I was always the kid who could draw, so I attended Chinourd Art Institute’s children’s program in Los Angeles and art stayed my focus throughout high school. After that came a University of California degree in art history and then a Master's degree in painting. My work has shown in numerous juried and invitational group and one-person exhibitions, I co-owned an award-winning art gallery, taught college art, and was an Artist-in-Residence for the California Arts Council.
Later, photography let me be an artist and a parent at the same time. My photography exhibition, 'Witness: Intimate Passages, Images of Birth and Death,' was featured on KQED's California Report.
At present, I paint and I create site-specific installations, and I write.
