Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn’t here.

There is something about drawing or creating art that takes me to another space. I am always fascinated to see a drawing appear, to watch it grow, to see the image on the paper take form. The lines and shapes are old friends to me, and they make up a visual language for my experiences. Art has been my passion for 40 years.

In my beginning years as an artist I focused on graphite but in the last five years I have expanded into color, mostly in the form of paper collage. In addition, ink on paper has caught my attention; I tend to go where inclination leads me and watch what develop. I am a member of the following art organizations: Arts of Point Richmond, Northern California Women’s Caucus for Art (NCWCA), and Lamorinda Art Alliance.
