Through the painting of nature, I seek to connect to the one Spirit that pervades all. In unity with this Spirit, my emotions color my representations to create what I intend to be both a personal and universal statement.
My art instruction began at the age of eight with Jean Gardner of the San Jose Art League. Recent teachers include Jim Smyth, Mike Bailey, and Ann Thiermann. From San Jose State University, I hold a BA in Art History with a minor in Fine Art, and a Masters in Library Science and a Masters in Instructional Technology.
My one-woman shows include Unity Palo Alto Community Church, 2006, and Avalon Art and Yoga Center, Palo Alto, 2007. Also, I have shown at the Pacific Art League of Palo Alto and with the Santa Clara Valley Watercolor Society at the Triton Museum of Art, Santa Clara.
