I live in Northern California where we are surrounded by the beauty of the Pacific Ocean and groves of Redwood Trees. Flowers grow in abundance in our temperate climate and they are often the subjects of my paintings. Our community flourished in the 1880's and retains many of the old homes and neighborhoods, which are also in much of my work. We are a thriving Art town with many art organizations and galleries to display our endeavors. One of my specialities is painting custom pictures of homes. These make great gifts for a Holiday, Birthday, Housewarming, Weddings or as a gift to yourself. If this interests you, please contact me at :

My profession allowed me to write and illustrate children's books, many of which were used to supplement the curriculum. I have taught Art to all grades, K-12. My love of flowers led me to create a coloring book featuring common flowers found in our community. My Corgi, Merry, keeps me company in my Studio, which is my favorite place to hang out and paint!
