what else can I tell you?
I've been written about here and there,

I've been featured in the SF chronicle in 2020,

My artwork is featured in a book called "Sexy After Breast Cancer" by Jocelyn Binder,

I was showing at three different places in SF before the pandemic hit. 

In fact, during my time in San Francisco, I was showing all over town, almost all the time.


I even got to create an art installation room at the Midway in SF for NYE when little dragon was performing.

I held art salons at my apartment on occasion.

Before I was making this kind of art, I was a fashion photographer for small brands, and I was an artist's assistant to some fine people in 1890 Bryant street named John Warren Travis and Jonah Burlingame.
 
I'm known for being a rather iconic dresser.

I was also in some bands for a couple of years and

I made an album of my own in 2021, and it's a damn good album.


I got a bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Idaho, where I focused on painting and collage, while working as an assistant to Beth Cavener (the renowned sculptor) - I engineered the leather surrounding these forms of organs seen in her series that sold out at Miami Art week back in 2009.
I also worked at the local gallery as a docent.
And, I worked at a&w root beer while going through a divorce.  Nice.
Graduated at the top of my class and 99% of my professors hated me because I was a smart ass.
 
I was voted most artistic in my senior year of high school.

In 6th grade my peers and teacher teased me for drawing too many cartoons...

as a kid I was passionate about time travel and animals.

My first memories are of the desert southwest.





The dream world is my playground.

I've been experiencing lucid dreams since childhood, and have kept dream journals for as long as I can remember.

I currently live in Pioneertown with my amazing husband and our amazing dog.



Have a nice day!
