In 2009 I exhibited my work in solo exhibitions at the Encinitas Public Library and the Eric Phleger Gallery, and group shows at the Long Beach Museum of Art and the Torrance Art Museum. In January 2010, a double thumbprint portrait of mine will be included in 'Movers & Shakers: Who's Who in the San Diego Visual Arts World'. My work is included in the esteemed Allan Chasanoff Bookworks Collection in NYC, and is referenced in an essay entitled ‘Creating Icons: Melville in Visual Media and Popular Culture’ in the book A Companion to Herman Melville.

I received a B.F.A. from the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston, Massachusetts, and now live in Encinitas, California with my husband Xavier, and our children Hugo and Esmé.
