Born and mostly raised in California, I am now happily living and creating in beautiful San Diego.  I have had no formal art training but armed with a strong desire to learn, I have taken many art related adult education classes and workshops.

My first art teacher favored pastels, so that was the medium I started with.  Since then I have tried several others, but pastel remains my favorite.  I love the vibrant colors and ease of application.

I enjoy painting portraits, especially of children.  They have such free spirits and express a wonderful curiosity and love of life.  Always honest in their feelings, they are fun to photograph and paint.

I am currently having lots of fun creating still life paintings.  The wonderful colors and textures are very exciting to capture on paper.  I find inspiration in everyday objects and the wealth of fruits and vegetables we see every day.

For several years I have been a member of the San Diego Portrait Society and the Pastel Society of San Diego.  I have shown work in many local shows and have won several awards.  I still take classes and workshops and continue to learn and grow in my art.
