SAN RAFAEL, CA
I find endless inspiration in the human ability to relate to and sense a truth or story through the subtle unspoken language in a face.
It is my desire and honor to, not only translate the delicate beauty of the human form, but the unique essence, spirit, or story of the sitter into my paintings.
As a whole, my work seeks to explore and celebrate the human condition and our innate ability to find connection in ways that transcend understanding.

She studied at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco until she was hired out of school to create art for Hollywood films. It was during her decade of film work, that she found her passion and voice for creating cinematic images that balance tension with beauty and unspoken emotion. The Matrix trilogy, Harry Potter, Pirates of the Caribbean and Transformers movies, are just a few films that feature her work.
Her paintings and drawings are an exploration of the human condition and our innate ability to find connection.
