My Work
I have had the pleasure to be taught by my dear friend Judy Schroeder here in Orange.  I have also taken several classes with the esteemed Gerald Brommer,
Judy Morris, & Iian Stewart.  

There are so many artists I admire and hope to take classes with, I could not list them all here!

The small town charm of Old Towne Orange and the natural beauty of Fox Island, Washington are my inspiration.

Color is my first love!  Movement & happy surprises in watercolor are what bring me greatest joy!
Khadi paper is my favorite paper & I use several brands of paint including Daniel Smith & L'Aquarielle. 

I also do Torchworked Enamel jewelry and have recently expanded into oil painting.

In the gallery are some works which are available for sale.  Shipping within the continental US is included in the listed prices.  Shipping internationally is available.

Commissions are available on an individual basis
based on size , media and subject.

I work primarily in Watercolor and Watercolor Stained Collage.  For me, they are my most expressive medium & I love working with color.  I have always "dabbled" in art from high school, college and while raising my 3 children.  

 My youngest is at Azusa Pacific University studying for an MFA in Acting for Stage & Screen.  My oldest has recently graduated from Rhode Island School of Design (2015) and is pursuing a career in Graphic Design, Photography & Animation. My second is graduated in 2016 from UCSD double majors in Linguistics and Theater & Dance and is pursuing classical theater in New York City.
I have now entered into a more serious exploration of artistic study.  Thank you for the opportunity to share my journey with you.  I have found inspiration from other artists who have made themselves vulnerable through blogs & sharing their successes & failures, so I welcome the critiques of established artists & hope that aspiring artists find encouragement here!
