I am originally from NY where I used to teach art to youth at risk elementary school children. Living in LA for many years I got my Design Communication Arts Degree from UCLA. My husband and I have been owners of the label company, California Label Products for 20 years. I am the Art Director. Among other things, we create trim for the garment industry, including woven and printed labels, hangtags, leather patches, metal buttons, and other novelty items.

I was the president of Redondo Beach Art Group (RBAG) from 2010-2012. I co chaired the Power of Art in 2011 and also co chaired an art show for the RBAG members in 2012 called Imagine. I have been coordinating the teaching of Hands On Art Projects to children from Richstone Family Center, a facility dedicated to preventing and treating child abuse. This has been a once a month project with artists from RBAG and Friends of Redondo Beach Arts for many years. I recently became a Public Art Commissioner for Redondo Beach and am excited to be a part of defining the artistic future of our city. These last few years as I spend a little less time at the office and running the art group, I have found more time to be creative. I devote that time to family and painting. My style is Mixed Media Collage and Acrylic. I am currently doing a series of ICONS. So far they are Elvis, Audrey and Marilyn.
