Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

From a very young age, I began to pursue my passionate interest in drawing. Without the aide of teaching, I sketched all manner of subjects from real life scenery to still life. At age ten, I had my first lesson in painting with oils.
After years of personal development, I decided to incorporate my skills into a business endeavor. Therefore, in 1985, I launched my own company and began my career in the art of custom hand lettered signs. Already accustomed with painting oil and acrylics, I acquired experience in pinstriping, Gold Leaf and airbrush. By applying my creative techniques and designs to various materials such as canvas, foam, plastic, wood and glass, my custom lettering and painting methods quickly gained customers from the Commercial/Retail market and the Racecar industry. Later, as my direction shifted from commercial graphics into Fine Art, I began studies in Color Theory and various techniques of the Old Masters.

Today, my passion for art continues to flourish. My personality lends itself to the humorous side of life, which allows me to express myself through my work, while I continually strive to stretch the boundaries of my viewer's imagination.

My method of expression is through Rebuses... (ree-buses) puzzles or riddles in which pictures represent words or phrases.

I invite you to play the game of solving each Rebus by the obvious and hidden clues within each of my works.

Memberships include International Guild of Realism, Oil Painters of America, Women Artists of the West (WAOW Signature member), California Art Club and Laguna Beach Art-A-Fair. My work is exhibited nationally, and has won awards in various juried shows including the International Museum of Contemporary Masters Salon International.
