Occupation artist mom
Introduction I'm an artist, mom and sometimes art teacher. I'm also one of the founding members of a successful volunteer-run art program at my son's school. I live a busy yet somewhat simple life in the mountains of Southern California. Art is very important to me, and I try to live creatively each day. I'm basically self-taught, learnin by doin. I have an eclectic mix of interests and it shows in my work. I try to focus on the happy things in life. I love lots of color, but I also like to do pen and ink drawings. I just can't stick with one thing, so I'm always trying something new.
