Having a strong business background with the Internet and marketing, I participate in many online communities and organizations for professional artists, am founder of CraftWEB.com (establishing the largest online community of hot-glass professional artists back in 1994), and author of the book, "In Search of Arts & Crafts on the Internet" and recent author of "Top 10 Email Scams" and "Social Media Scams".

I am a former President of the San Francisco Women Artists (SFWA), and one of the original founding members of the International Encaustic Artists (IEA).

I live in San Francisco and have a studio/gallery in Sausalito, CA.

I also design and develop websites for artists and small businesses, help with social networking marketing, and consult with artists on their careers.
