My background in the exploration of self expression began at a young age in the seventh grade upon taking private art lessons followed in my adult life by many classes in design and various paint mediums at American River College located in Sacramento, California.
In 1978 I began a small craft business developing silk/dried floral design as well as primitive folk art. Creating is a passion and provides me with a sense of serenity.
Having designed and decorated two custom built homes, one of which is in Nine Mile Falls, Washington led me to developing my tile mural behind my stove top.
Currently I am painting on various tiles, marble and granite. Each piece is developed to work with the background of the tile, marble or granite piece.
