In 2005, after a career in graphic design, she became a full-time painter traveling the country participating in plein air competitions, art festivals and teaching workshops. Her distinctive style has received national notice, having been published on the covers of both Southwest Art and Plein Air Magazines. She was the 2nd Annual Plein Air Salon Competition Grand Prize Winner, and also has an instructional video, “Painting From Photographs” published by Liliedahl. Her newest passion is helping artists find their own voice by facilitating “Creative Expression Playshops” in her Milwaukee studio.
