I am a Southern California Artist. I work primarily in pastels, however, I also love oils. My subjects are various as I am drawn to the figure, to still life, interiors and the landscape. The fleeting nature of life focuses me on the beauty of the ordinary. I presently teach at a local community college and have done so for many years. Teaching is important to me and the friendships I enjoy, often as a result of teaching, are rewarding as well. I want my art to reflect my wonderful life as a woman, wife, mother, grandmother, teacher and friend.
