I am a mixed media artist, designer and instructor from San Jose, CA (currently living in Tempe, AZ).  I believe that everyone has a unique style and desire to create and that we are born curious and creative.  Over the years, many of us are discouraged from following our creative urges but I believe it is never too late to begin (or begin again!).  My art is messy, colorful, layered and fun. I have been drawn to the creative arts since I can remember.  My first canvas was every surface in my grandma’s house: the walls, the books, underneath the marble coffee table in the dining room (she didn’t find out until years later)!  These days, I love filling up pages in my art journal with bright colors and collage paper and if I can be outside on a picnic blanket in the grass--even better!  I love inspiring others and cheering them on as they (re)discover their creative voice.
