About Me

"Our reflection is not what others perceive you to be, but what you believe yourself to be, and the choices you make"




Often times throughout our lives we feel many different emotions. We feel love, we feel anger, we feel hurt, we laugh, we cry, we let go, then we turn the page and a new chapter begins. I enjoy drawing these stories of life. I focus on identities and transitions throughout life. My motivation comes from everyday stories; friends and family that possess something that I feel a need to connect with and to further explore.
Currently living in Southern California,in the City of Palm Springs. where I paint, care for my two dogs and manage a short term rental property.

 If you would like to use any of my images for publication, please send me an  email or leave me a message.

 If you are considering a vacation to Palm Springs, consider my rental, The Tiki Room:)
