My greatest joy is letting my imagination run wild on paper. Things from my dreams, images from science fiction books, old toys, and monster movies I loved as a kid comprise my working cast of characters. I “lose time” while drawing and painting, and my hope is that viewers lose a little time trying to figure out my work and come up with their own interpretation. I am a self-taught, mixed-media artist living in Silicon Valley. I recently became a full time artist after retiring from high tech. Now my day job never stresses me out and always makes me happy. I love mixed media — I’m the queen of too many art supplies and too many ideas.
