About Me


I was born in Wiesbaden West Germany, and moved to California as a child, where I began a life­long passion for all animals and wildlife. Always having a household full of pets, I was never short of subjects to draw and paint. ​

I earned a nursing degree as a young adult and worked for many years while raising my family. However, I never  lost my true passion for wildlife and nature which influences my artwork today.  

Being a self-­taught wildlife artist, I now live with my husband in beautiful Laguna Canyon. I believes my best training has come from being outdoors and studying the work of my favorite wildlife artists, such as Carl Brenders and Dino Paravano.  

In 2015, I participated in several art exhibitions at the San Clemente Art Gallery where I won several top honors and Best in Show awards. I was commissioned by the Pacific Marine Mammal Center in Laguna Beach, where I donates my time and am an active member.  

Conservation concerns have become increasingly important me, for which I use my artwork to endorse and contribute to several international programs such as the World Wildlife Fund, White Lion Sanctuary and ASPCA.

My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.


Nature and inspiration surround us all. I have found that working from photographs, taken by myself or my photographer son are most helpful in maintaining the accuracy of my subjects. I will put together 4 to ­5 photographs to create a particular composition and to maintain a realistic effect.


I've always known from an early age that wildlife and nature encompass my everyday life. As a creative artist I have learned to see what others may not or miss, and I feel the need and desire to put it down in some way and share it. I  have experimented with different mediums and found oils to be my favorite.  Painting detail in fur and feathers can bring so much life into a painting. Every  painting is a learning process and I want to continue learning everyday until I can no longer pick­up a paintbrush.
