I first began to paint in college. After finishing my graduate program in architecture, I worked for several years as a graphic designer at the University of Minnesota. I left that job to raise my children, but when they grew older I took up painting again. After encountering an encouraging amount of success with my art, I opened up a studio in the NE Minneapolis Arts District.
My paintings often features familiar sights such as children, fauna and flora in whimsical and semi-abstract settings rendered in vibrant colors painted on canvas and wood.
