I was born in Hawaii and moved to Alaska in 1979. I worked in the engineering world for a living, married a civil engineer, became a piping designer for the oil industry and had two sons. In 2004 I went back to school, got an Art degree from UAA and found myself and my "peeps". I have always doodled and made stuff and my time at UAA let me run wild. I wanted to do everything and still do. My first love is ceramics and sculpture. Watercolors continue to fascinate, challenge and elude me and fish printing (gyotaku) is just plain fun. I am grateful my family and friends support me in my creative endeavors and that my day job has enabled me to build my art studio. I hope you enjoy my work.
