Since I was a child, I have loved being an artist. My first jobs were painting Christmas windows and making posters, invitations, flyers and greeting cards. Over the years I have painted murals, illustrated for local newspapers, designed logos, and run an apparel business. My favorite mediums are pen & ink, colored pencils, with a touch of computer graphics. Some of my early influences were John Tenniel (Alice in Wonderland) Garth Williams, Maurice Sendak and Arthur Rackham. I am now retired from most other jobs, and free to explore doing my own thing...which is whimsical holiday art and nursery / kids’ playful illustrations. I sell my work online through my Etsy store and my own website, as well as travel to various arts and craft fairs and festivals throughout the year. I offer most pieces in assorted sizes and formats: decoupage on wood (with hanging wire and beads), note cards, bookmarks, ornaments, magnets and cabochon jewelry.
I work from my home in Southern California.
