I believe in the transformative power of art to empower, heal and connect people. Grounded in the spirit of play and joy, I consider my intuitive art making process a spiritual experience. My studio is my sanctuary. I enjoy processes and methods that require waiting, slowing down, and are meditative. Materials and selecting the materials are important to me. Art making cultivates a sense of curiosity, wonder and possibilities and is my practice of being present and resisting certitude. A strong belief and connection to a divine power is often expressed in my works. I am inspired by the natural world and stories of the human experience. Symbolism is the common thread that is woven into my work. I make mixed media and book art and especially love hanji, Korean handmade mulberry paper.

After a 20 year career in health care and becoming an empty nester, I listened to my spirit whispers to embark on my artist journey in 2013. I am passionate about empowering girls and women through education and the arts. The proceeds from my art sales are donated to organizations that honor the dignity and respect for all by offering healing creative expression workshops, access to education, mental and behavioral health services and social justice advocacy. I enjoy traveling, reading and being out in nature. I live in Marin County, CA with my beloved partner and two doggies.
