Another unique version of you.

Writer, Artist 

Beyond a ceaseless exploration of color, texture, and medium, I view my art as a form of prayer meditation during these pivotal times. 


Drawing on both personal and universal symbolism, I embrace the childlike and innocent in my paintings. Vintage glass glitters, natural crystals, and diamond glass create sparkle and iridescence to signify the miracle of life in our natural world.


Whether dealing with subjects like war…dwindling bee populations, or rising sea levels in an era of unpredictable climate change, I strive through my art to offer a shimmering celebration of community, hope, and endurance of the human spirit.

In addition to my studio practice as an artist, I'm a published writer. I live in the seaside town of Santa Cruz, California with the best veggie comfort food cook in the world, two cats and a pet hen.
