I'm a mixed media artist living my dream of creating every day and my passion for art has been with me from childhood. I've been teaching and painting for over 26 years in many different mediums, but found my art soul mate in mixed media.

I have been published in several magazines, and have been part of Donna Downey’s Artist Gang and Deco Art Media Design team for several years.

I produce my own line of stencils and create soulful and informative workshops on mixed media.
