I'm originally a Montana girl, and graduated in Graphic Design from Montana State University, Bozeman. I still hike and snow ski when I can, but I traded pine needles for cactus needles and dropped my suitcase in Phoenix, Arizona.


I have stretched my creativity in several directions. I designed hand-painted pillows with beads and conversational charms for retail shops such as Barneys New York, Ballard Designs catalog, ABC Carpet & Home, and The American Craft Museum. One of my pillow designs also became a hand-painted canvas doll, the “Baby Angel,” celebrating individuality. Because of my obsession with hardware, I designed hardware & pearl bracelets & a belt that I named the "ziG". I sold these in shops and on-line. I continue to get orders for the ziG, if people see it on me. They are a great conversation piece!

Currently, I work with acrylic and ink, or colored pencils, and do both whimsical paintings with a humorous title, & also draw realistic food, and landscapes with colored pencils.  I have a line of prints, cards, calendars, and also mugs for furry rescues. Recently, I began painting abstracts. I have also written & illustrated with my abstract paintings, a kick-ass book called, "Getting Your Magic Back". It is about pushing through life's transitions, and is a simple two lines per page read. I have donated copies of my

book to a women's organization called, "Fresh Start Women's Foundation". They help women who help themselves and provide them with education, resources, and support.

"Getting Your Magic Back"


Rescue organizations are dear to my heart. I donate my art to various rescue organizations, and also do commissioned work. I was Arizona Animal Welfare League's featured artist during 2018, and the featured artist five years in a row for Shemer Art Center & Museum's 

 "Furry Friends" event. One of my paintings, "Lenny" with the cat 

on his head, was part of a juried show for Arizona Artists Guild

and displayed at the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. I also have two paintings, "Hope" and "Joy" permanently 

displayed at the Phoenix Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center.

With either my art, or my writing...my hope is to make you smile.
