I'm a Los Angeles native, and I began sketching at a very early age. My formal training in Art started at CSUN in California. My paintings are influenced by the French Impressionist school and I now bring my artistic eye to the Photographic stage. I use my unique eye for beauty, light, color and composition and creates images of all living things.

My works hang in many private collections around the United States.

My motivation is simple ...
"I want to touch the heart of the viewing audience."

Let me touch your heart.


Flowers, children, animals.....all living things are important to my life and to everything I create. It shows in my oil paintings as I like to produce the kind of emotional painting that "touches the heart of the audience". My paintings have been exhibited at the Ruth Mayer Gallery in Laguna Beach, and the Swan Gallery, Toluca Lake, where I had a very successful One Woman Show. I am a member of the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, DC.

I've done many commissioned works because of a unique impressionist style of portraiture. Please let me know if I can help answer any questions about my current work or if you would like something commissioned. It would be my pleasure to..."touch your heart".

Prices, for all my work, are available on request. All works are the sole property of the artist and cannot be duplicated without written permission from the artist.


My photographs are an extension of my artistic eye. I try to see everything in a different and unique way, expressing the beauty and character of all I capture in the camera's eye.

Whatever you need in a photographer, I will try to meet those needs and give you a picture you won't find anywhere else.

Call for an appointment, or e-mail me.

Photographs may be purchased framed or unframed. You can commission me to do original photos.

I would love to hear from you ...! It seems that there's always a 'work-in-progress' on my easel, and I enjoy talking with art lovers and fellow artists, not only about what I'm doing, but about the 'creative process' and where this all comes from ...

Charlie and my sweet Bonnie live in my heart and I think of them daily and will love them forever. My new pal Foxy helps to keep me company now.

Whether it's a comment about one of the paintings here on my site, or a question about a particular work, or just to say 'Hi' - please drop me a note!
