About me

Industry Arts
Location Carmichael, California, United States
Introduction Moving back to the Sacramento area helped me rediscover the great parks and rivers of the area. Sacramento has so many wonderful trees that I love painting. I try to paint different subjects but I'm always drawn back to the trees. I love the scenes that we pass every day and hardly notice. My favorite mediums are water color, acrylic and oil pastel. In 1998, I began working in the Artist in Schools Program of Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission. I have competed 6 murals at Garfield School and several other murals with the young artists in Sacramento. Currently, I am retired after 10 years as the Program Director of Women's Wisdom ART, a community arts organization that helps women who have experienced trauma.
