I have been creating art for as long as I can remember. My mother being an artist felt it important to impart her gift to me through various art classes. I went on to earn my Bachelors in photography from California Institute of the Arts and a Masters in Illustration from Academy of Art University. I have worked as a high school art teacher for the past 15 years but recently moved to the central coast to pursue a full time art career.
