She has combined her creative skills into a passion where clients encouraged her to pursue her artistic dreams.

She is doing her small part to help preserve the California Delta and hopes that through her art, she can create an awareness to preserve the beauty of these special places.

She hopes that the collectors of her work can be touched in some way and take time to enjoy the moments in life and reflect on the joy and beauty that has been given to us each day.
