Who I Am:
I’m all over the place: a textbook Gemini. I’m an abstract painter, a Buddhist chanter, a truth-
teller, a yogi, a teacher, and recently, a protester. I’m also a “mothership”, wifey, daughter, Grammy, dog mama, and friend to many.

What I’ve Done:
Studied abstract and oil painting with two amazing California artists, taught piano, voice and yoga for several decades, traveled to a bunch of countries, soloed professionally in classical, choral and contemporary venues, announced on FM radio, served as a singing waiter, dropped out of an opera masters degree to write and record pop songs, directed several student musicals, and starred in musicals and plays in my youth.

Where I’m From:
Born in Kansas, raised in Chicago, graduated In Austin, painted in Minneapolis, taught in San Diego, studied on Sicily, had my daughter in Ventura, mothered in Port Hueneme, taught in Camarillo, found my soulmate in Phoenix, summered at Oxnard Shores, and painted at the shore and in the desert.
