About the Artist
I have been drawing and painting since I was 4 years old. In 2006 I won best in show at XX - a show of women's art and was the cover of the 2006 Northwest Women's Directory. That same year I was chosen to create a Christmas Ornament for the White House in Washington, D.C. and was invited to attend the artist's reception there. In 2013 my heart mixed media sculpture, "Home is where the Heart is... Heart is where the Home is," won best in show and sold for $25,000 and helped to collectively raise over $500,000 for the PeaceHealth Heart Center in Vancouver, WA. I am currently working on a series called "Dancing in Red" which is inspired by my love of salsa and flamenco dancing.
