I couldn't resist taking a few more pictures once my camera was recharged.. enjoy!The bookends and crystal beaded swan, I purchased at Alameda Pt. for my daughter's room, and the bottle brush tree, I found at the White Elephant Sale, ooh la la!
I've always had my hands in one medium or another.. from making Christmas ornaments with my Mom to painting sets for the high school musicals.
After several years managing stationery & gift shops, I decided upon a career change. Determined to pursue a more creative avenue I enrolled in a Regional Occupational Training program for one year where I studied graphic design and illustration. Upon completing this program I was awarded a scholarship to The Academy of Art College in San Francisco, and in addition, I was awarded a scholarship by the Society of Illustrators, San Francisco. After college, I worked as a freelance designer for several advertising agencies before leaving work to begin my family.
