After graduating in 1990 from North Hennepin Community College with a Graphic Design degree I started my own business. Fine art is my passion working in pastels, watercolor, inkwash, pencil, and acrylic. I’ve illustrated three children's books, 'The Captain's Hat' and “The Adventures of Molly & Skunky” for author Deb Mercier and “Missing My Best Friend” for author, Norma Thorstad Knapp.
I was blessed with two sons and five grandchildren. Traveling provides me with many inspirations for my work. We have a small casa in Teacapán, Mexico where I have found wonderful subjects for my artwork.
