Fun Facts: I have been painting since childhood and continue to develop this passion in a shared studio space in Berkeley, CA (part of the Firehouse Art Collective). I enjoy mixed media and oils, and spent a few years painting on silk with dyes and wax resists. I have sold paintings and hand painted textiles in galleries over the years. I love cooking, skate boarding, and plan to learn how to surf as soon as possible.
I enjoy teaching and will begin a part time role as teaching assistant at Berkeley City College where I’ll be working with high school students this summer.

Fun Facts:  I’ve always had a passion for singing and music, but it wasn’t until I was 34 years old that I was moved to do it myself. So I  joined a band.  I was fortunate to get hooked up with some great musicians and mentors. We went on to write and self-release 2 albums, and played a multitude of shows in the Bay area.
