All my life, I've had a love affair with making art. It relaxes, heals, energizes, connects, and brings insight and joy into people's day to day lives.
I grew up in a creative household, earned my art degree, and have worked for arts organizations such as galleries, an auction, custom framing, art supply sales, as well as owning my own gallery and vintage retail space.
Today I teach creative workshops such as acrylic painting, mixed media, as well as creativity coaching. Working with students who are enthusiastic about art lights up my life. The transformations I see, whether people take one class or several, is highly rewarding.
When I'm not teaching I'm usually enjoying time with friends in Sacramento, taking road trips around Northern California, or just staying in and being a homebody while testing creative projects to share with my students.
