A BFA in fine arts and art history, I’ve been an advertising and marketing designer for several local establishments, as well as having my artwork on consignment in local galleries. I was born to be an artist … or maybe to just be weird. I've been painting since I was 3 years old, painting with my mom on old pieces of drift wood we found on the beach. Today, much of my artwork is mixed media, using found objects recycled into my paintings, jewelry, and purses. I created and designed a privately-owned tanning salon in Galveston. My swing dance team was selected to perform in Australia for the closing ceremony of the 2000 Olympics, not art related, but kinda cool. Now, my focuses are on environmental and animal rights activism, which is reflected in many of my paintings. I also donate my artwork and time to the local shelter to help raise money and save lives. Volunteering at the animal shelter, I saw the worst of the worst that humans have done to animals. I've been active and supporting animal rights for two decades and in that time I also became a vegetarian, after seeing a Humane Society film on the torturous conditions in the US slaughter houses. I realized right then and there that My Job is to be the voice for the furry (and not so furry)... so that's what I do. 20% of my sales are donated to the Humane Society and PETA.
