I'm an artist, professionally trained chef, and owner of Whole Health Everyday. Using oils and acrylics, and favoring the pallet knife, I create paintings that celebrate the female form, tell stories of women, and show the deep emotions of the moments captured. Some of my most beloved work has come from love, passion, and loss. From the death of my sister to lost love, passionate love, and the never ending hope of finding true love. My ocean scenes of course come from our beautiful California views! Growing up in a small rural town in Western Massachusetts with eight siblings, I was always surrounded by family. My fondest memories are of board games with friends, swimming in the rivers, and walks in the rain on a country road. Although I left MA at 18 to serve in the US Navy and to get away from small town living to explore the world, I miss it terribly now and cherish my trips home. I have also lived in Florida and Seattle, settling in southern California in 1998 and I am now living in Arizona since 2019.
