About

Another door always opens.

My life as an artist has taken me in many interesting directions.

Many moons ago I graduated from San Diego State University with a B.A. in art with an emphasis in fashion design and graphic design. I wanted to move to the 'Big Apple' and become a famous fashion designer but got married instead.

My first professional art job was working for the navy as a graphic designer and I later worked at an ad agency as their art director. After that, I had a shop/art studio where I created one of a kind copper enameled wall mirrors and paintings and kept doing some free-lance graphic design on the side.

After baby #2, I did free-lance graphic design out of my home as well as some etched glass designs for spec homes and for my own kitchen cupboards. I painted murals in each of my children's rooms and throughout our home.

After my divorce, I tried to get back into graphic design but quickly found that I was a dinosaur because I had no computer skills. I did various boring jobs until I was hired to design custom large room size area rugs working with interior designers. After I saw how this business was run, I quit and went into business for myself. I did that for ten years until a slowdown in the economy. At the suggestion of a friend, I started selling my paintings on the internet and in galleries and have found this to be a great way to earn a living for about the last 15 years.

I paint original contemporary abstract expressionist paintings, original contemporary abstract and impressionist landscape and floral paintings and original contemporary figurative paintings in acrylics on stretched and unstretched canvas.

Some of my pieces have an oriental influence due to a period of time spent living in Japan during my impressionable childhood years.

I have created and sold over 2500 original paintings over the last 15 years online and through galleries and commissions.

I am a published artist and my award winning art has been viewed in many juried and invitational exhibitions, galleries, blogs, TV shows including AMC's 'Mad Men', West Elm, One Kings Lane, and in private/corporate collections internationally.

I was honored to be selected as an ETSY FEATURED SELLER. You may read my interview on the etsy Blog, interview date of Sept. 9, 2011.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and for viewing my work!

Buyer is responsible for the return shipment fee, shipment must be insured, and tacking number should be emailed to me. When I have received the art back in it's original condition, I will refund to you the cost of the art minus the original shipping fee.

No returns accepted for paintings that buyer had me take the canvas off of the wooden stretcher bars in order to ship rolled up in a shipping tube.
