As a local Palm Springs artist, I describe my work as "Vintage Abstract". Where inspiration, technique, paint, a few brushes and palette knives are all that are needed. My work is guided by freedom of emotional expression.  While respecting color, composition, line, light and form. My process evolves after a period of intense thought. Then, what I call “Into Crazy Land”, where emotions are released and set free to completion. My greatest inspiration came from my Aunt Norma, an awesome painter. Other admired artists are , Joan Mitchell, Joan Eardley and Lars Kristian Hansen

I was educated at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco with continuing classes at the Desert Art Center and Desert Art Classes.  Many of my pieces are in private and corporate collections nationally and internationally.  After working freelance as an artist handpainting on fondant cakes for hundreds of clients, the decision was made to pursue a fulltime career as a mix medium artist.
