I am a Southern Californian female artist born and raised in Los Angeles. I am self taught and have been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember.  Creating art everyday is what keeps me whole.
 I tell stories in pencil and paint.  My visual narratives are based on live sketches in malls, and barbershops, bits and pieces of current events,, and made up scenes that happen as I draw into the painted areas.  It's always a stream of consciousness.  Drawing is a strong part of my process as I assimilate  the conversations that take place in areas of communal exchange.  Meanings behind words hang in the air.  I seek to understand the constant regeneration of the spirit in each of us.
