I am a visual artist that uses many different mediums to express my creativity. Printmaking has been a twenty year passion, but I have expanded my creative endeavors to include watercolors, colored pencils, acrylics, ceramics and mixed media collage. My imagery is born from an undying love of nature and my experiences within it. I have lived and played in the Lake Tahoe region for 20 plus years and during that time I have skied, hiked, biked and climbed my way through the Sierra Nevada Mountains. I never tire of the scenic beauty of this area and I am blessed to call it home. 

Traveling has also been a large part of my life and has influenced much of my artistic style. I have spent time in Southeast Asia, Indonesia, Thailand, Nepal, Patagonia, and Canada. My travels have allowed me to experience many cultures of the world and I have drawn from various religious symbols and beliefs to create my own spirituality. My art has always been very personal to my life and I use a lot of color and symbolism to capture that perfect "moment".

Six years ago I had an opportunity to teach art to children part time at a private school in western Nevada. Being a mother of a young child nearing primary school age, I was drawn to the possibilities of art education and I jumped in head first. At the age of 37, I found myself going back to school and have since completed my K-8 elementary certification with a K-12 Art Endorsement from Sierra Nevada College. In August of 2010, I also completed a Masters Degree in the Art of Education. This experience has changed my life in many ways. I am forging a new path for myself, building upon an exciting career that incorporates my love for art, my dedication to bettering the education of our youth and my endless quest for higher knowledge. I teach primarily to foster creativity in my students and am always searching for new opportunities to express my own creativity.
