About

beach photo2.jpg

A California native based in the Bay Area, I am a designer, artist and maker.  My artwork and portfolio encompass multiple media formats including watercolor, mono-printing, jewelry and collage. Inspired by nature, travel around the world, as well as my local coastal environment, I create art and objects that are vibrant and full of joy. 

 

My work covers a variety of subjects, ranging from flowers and butterflies, to landscapes near and far.  While primarily working in paint media, I also enjoy the process of working with found materials and ephemera to create unexpected results.  Colorful vintage postage stamps transform everyday objects into treasures.  Glass bowls shine with bright, saturated hues in the shape of flowers. 

Other projects include a richly illustrated cookbook.  Cooking at the Chateau - Seasonal menus from the south of France was developed after a delightful summer in the south of France and features my artwork and original recipes. (Available on Amazon).

I never tire of traveling to new places or of walking the same path along my favorite beach looking for shells.  For me, creativity comes from a blend of both exploration and stillness.
