About

I am a “Modern Day Renaissance Woman.”

My art is a combination of my life’s experiences, my studies, my connections, my passions, my family, friends, lovers, jobs, careers and travels.  My art is the result of all the things my senses have absorbed, the emotions they have stirred and the transference of the unknown and unseen into the known and seen.

Community Service

Ten years ago, after the loss of a grueling career in the hospitality industry, I found myself sitting on a couch, contemplating my life.  My career was my second love, my art was my first and on that day I returned to my Artist’s Journey.  Step by step, connection by connection I returned to my first love through community service.

My community service is not conventional, it is my art.  My art is not, and never will be, characterized by mediums.  Mediums don’t really matter to me, I start with a thought and use whatever I want to bring it into existence, such are my projects, River City Art and Music and Riverview Artist Salon.
