National Parks Paintings

After teaching throughout California in the Central Valley, Monterey Bay, and Bay areas, painting has become a new outlet for me to capture the narrative of the landscapes that are sacred to our regional history. Currently, I am a stay at home mom, while I have not been able to conduct much oral history, I have been able to squeeze painting in during nap times.  I am actively showing and selling art at First Friday events around Santa Cruz.
