I was lucky to have a mother that always had a fun art project for me and my friends. It's because of her that I see beauty everywhere. My favorite place to look for that beauty is in the faces of everyone around me.

I started painting portraits when my kids were little. I painted them just being kids. Then I painted their friends in the neighborhood and then their friends at school. I realized I was on to something. I could stop time just for a moment. Who doesn't want that when they look at their children?

I love, love, LOVE to paint with watercolor and it is the perfect medium for a portrait. It is beautiful and luminous just like the people I paint.

I live my artsy, fartsy life in Southern California surrounded by the people I love. I am a lucky girl!!!
