Hello and Welcome!
I have found nothing in life that compares with the thrill of creating and experiencing Art. Art in every form: writing, painting, music, theater; all in the end expressions of life. The joys, the agonies, the frustrations. However abstract, transcendental, bizarre, Art draws from life; a vision, a thought, an epiphany sparked by what is going on around us. It challenges boundaries, explores new ideas and new ways to communicate them, and, finally, has the power to reach and connect with people of all different cultures
As Pablo Picasso says:
“A work of art must make a man react, feel strongly … He must be seized by the throat and shaken up … he has to be made aware of the world he’s living in and for that he must first be jolted out of it.” Thank you, Maestro. That says it all.
All my life I have been passionate about both Writing and Art and am now happily writing, and creating Art in the form of both Graphic Design as well as personal Art.
I have over twenty years of Graphic Design, some agency work, some freelance. I work in Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. My experience includes:
- Creating images for social media
- Marketing collateral such as brochures, postcards, in-store posters
- Book cover designs
- Newspaper covers and layouts
You can check out my work on the “Graphic Design” page.
In the last few years, I have focused mainly on designing book covers, being an author myself.
My “Book Cover Design” contains ones that I have done for clients as well as samples for future clients.
My fourth novel, Owl Manor – the Final Stroke, book 3 of the Owl Manor Trilogy, is now available for 2.99 on kindle! It follows Book 1, Owl Manor – the Dawning and Book 2, Owl Manor – Abigail.

My husband, also an artist, and I live in the San Francisco Bay Area, where the sublime Napa Valley wines fuel our creative endeavors!
Thanks for coming and I hope you find something that touches you on my pages!
