A narrative artist who creates watercolor and oil paintings to hold space
where you can connect with nature, other people, and yourself.
She builds a framework to reclaim the wholeness we are born with—our
innate bond with the substance and enigma of the world.
“I believe we all yearn for connection. To the planet, to animals, to community,
to each other. To ourselves. My work forges those connections.”
She has lived from northern California to southern Mexico, and now resides
in Calaveras County. She is a certified California Naturalist and holds a degree
in plant science, which brings depth to her nature paintings.
She honed her story telling skills at Sunset Magazine and the
Calaveras County Arts Council. She studied life drawing with Rob Anderson
and David Hardy at the Atelier of Classical Realism in Oakland, watercolor
with Steve Curl, and landscape painting with Felicia Forte and Halcyon Teed.
