She studied at San Jose State and graduated with a BA in Graphic Design with a concentration in Illustration. A few years later, was able to take some classes at the S. F. Academy of Art. But the illustration aspect never fully materialized. Her career concentrated in graphic design. She worked as a graphic designer for many years. In 2014 the call to draw and paint came back with a vengeance so she picked up fine arts where she had left off. Or so she thought. It was shocking to her to realize how much ability you lose after not drawing consistently. Diligent practice at rediscovering the basics like drawing, color, composition before attempting to paint. Reacquainting herself with media and materials she hadn't used in years. Watercolors provided yet another huge learning curve. She asked herself...did I really know how to do this before? While working on mastering watercolors again, she discovered Alcohol Inks. She was captivated by the vividness of the colors and the movement of the paints. They became an obsession, discovering different materials and techniques, all which ended up unlocking a looser style for her watercolors as well. She now goes back and forth between the two mediums which she feels fuels her growth and complements her painting style. She is a member of the Santa Clara Valley Watercolor Society, The Pacific Art League and, as a member, her work can be seen regularly at Gallery 9, a co-op gallery in Los Altos, CA. and on www.gallery9.com.
