about me

head shot 2


In elementary school my mother signed me up for drawing and painting classes after school. I have been drawing, painting, crafting, writing, creating … ever since.

I am a Mechanical Engineer in the Computer Aided Design field, raising 2 sons with my husband and living my life. I have interests in gardening, reading, and philosophy in a Tao/Zen kind of way.

More about my art bio? More about my art history?

My current set of work is somewhat abstract landscapes, created on large canvas, using a 3 inch yellow plastic putty knife and acrylic paint. Once the image is complete, I finish with isolation layers and varnish.
