My early memories are filled with images of being sprawled out on my bedroom floor surrounded with crayons and coloring books. School years were filled with art competitions, local and state-wide. As a young adult, I sold my work on La Cienega and Melrose
in Los Angeles, I taught after school programs for kids, and adult classes at a local art studio in the San Fernando Valley.
During the "family" years, while raising 3 kids in Oregon, I stayed home to do t-shirt designs (some for the World Wildlife Fund), business logos, and free-lance design work for various companies. Throughout my childrens' school years, I was active in their school art adventures, and enjoyed painting the backdrop scenery for many a school play. My love for painting large grew from that, and I eventually started my own mural business when we moved to Arizona.
