My art and design background of over 30 years ranges from my Bachelor's Degree in Interior Design to painting trompe l' oeil murals, and manufacturing my own line of leather clothing, among other things. And I've been featured in galleries and art shows in Oregon, California, Idaho, Utah, Wyoming, Arizona and Washington. I've been published in Somerset Studio Magazine, the Faux Finishers and Paint Decor magazine as well as newspapers and other media. Heartwings is the name of the line of recycled pendants that I create from vintage tea and spice tins. Recently, I have also added artisan necklaces and bracelets that I create from vintage elements discovered in antique stores and flea markets. In addition to being an artist, I own a professional organizing company - The Art of Organizing. I am also a life coach through my business, Life in Colour where I work in partnership with my clients in discovering how to best move forward with their creative dreams and goals.
