Hello & Welcome!

Thank you for visiting my art shop. It means so much to me when someone connects with my artwork. One of my favorite things is hearing that my buyers are happy with the piece they've received from me. I work as a full time artist painting what I love and feel. I paint a lot of mermaids because I love women, the ocean and fantasy. Mermaids are strong and feminine, yet incredibly playful. I get inspired by movement within natural patterns and peoples connections to each other. All artwork is packaged well for safe shipment. I do commissioned paintings upon request. Please don't hesitate to contact me. I love hearing from my customers.

ABOUT MY WORK: I sell my work online and in art galleries. I'm pleased to share that my work was published in Laguna Beach Magazine, in the Golden Thread Project book by The Golden Thread Gallery and on the cover of country singer, Patrice Webb's CD. It's also been used on Universal Studio and TLC sets. My mermaid painting can seen in the movie Sisters starring Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. I have large mural paintings hanging in Bay Area businesses in Northern California. And it was an honor to have my mermaid paintings on display at the ADEX International show In Singapore, India, China, Indonesia and Egypt promoting plastic free oceans which is something I believe in.

MY MEDIUMS: I use many different mediums, such as acrylics, watercolors and pastels. And I enjoy creating texture. I feel that working in a single medium is restrictive to my artistic process. My original paintings are done on stretched canvas.

A BIT ABOUT ME: I was lucky enough to grow up in a creative home in the California Foothills. My mother was an artist who inspired me, my father acted in live theater and my sister was a ballet dancer. As a teen I'd spend time painting murals on walls, drawing and painting theater sets. My love for art never stopped. I'm an advocate for insuring the arts remain in our public elementary schools. I also work part time with the Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission as a teaching artist where I instruct art lessons paired with schools curriculum to help students understand and enjoy subject matter. I absolutely love what I do. I reside in Northern California with my wonderful husband and two sons who continue to support me. The most important thing to me is family. We live with our four rescue dogs whom are my companions in my studio. Thank you for taking the time to read a bit about me and view my work.
