My story


I am inspired by the color and beauty that surrounds me every day.  I am happiest getting lost in the process with all the details and layers that make up my art.

I was born in the UK, moved as a young girl to Western New York, and then kept traveling West until I reached one of the most beautiful, breathtaking spots on the planet. I am fortunate to live in a beach town community in Santa Cruz, California where I can find my artistic passion while being surrounded my supportive family and friends.

Since winning an international art competition at the age of 7, I have never stopped drawing or creating. I received a BFA in Graphic Design and then spent the next 20 years as a Creative Director in corporate America. For the past 4 years I have been living the dream painting every day, mostly on commissions and personal work.

When I am not in the studio you can find me at the beach with three amazing boys, my loving husband and a rambunctious yellow lab. Often I am walking around taking in the color of the scenery, and compelled to paint it immediately.
