I am happiest when I am lost in the creative process. I always knew what I did wanted to pursue in life; ART. Following my dream, I moved to San Francisco in '92. But I had no idea I would marry, create a successful art-based business, become a mother and years later move to Chicago. It was there that I discovered Reborn Dolls. Now, painting and creating these amazing one of a kind dolls has added another layer to my canon of work: enriching my inspirational sources and my drive. My projects are diverse and include murals, sculptures and painted furniture from New Orleans to Paris. Throughout, one thing remains; whether covered in plaster, working on a ceiling, using a trowel or sitting in my studio doing detailed work, I strive for excellence in all I do. In my work, my love and pride resides.
