I am a California girl....well, I was born in Pittsburgh but moved to California in my early twenties and stayed for 30 years. I moved with my guy to Charlotte, NC in 2010 and had no idea what a life changing event was ahead of me. My current career as a print designer for the apparel business came to an abrupt end and I had to get my wits about me and figure out what I was going to do the rest of my life. I started painting and never stopped and now I am teaching. I love the creative process and I love sharing it. Life is sweet!!
