My mission is to spread delight across the planet by connecting people with snarky greeting cards and by creating playful artist books and found object pieces. I love seeing people laugh and snort as they read one of my cards, and then immediately think of who they can send it to. As my patrons slowly turn the pages of one of my books they are taken on a delightful mini-journey. I love putting found objects together in a new way, to inspire curiosity and spark imagination. I only use recycled or found materials, scrounged from flea markets, garage sales, library sales, and yes, the trash!
I am a life-long artist. I have taught art at Foothill and De Anze Colleges (Community Services) and the Palo Alto Adult School since 1993. I also taught Book Arts Instructor at the Pacific Art League in Palo Alto. I offer private classes in my Redwood City studio. My students find me to be creative, fun and well-organized. My work has been shown at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles and the De Saisset Museum.
You can buy my work at local art fairs and at the Bay Area Book Artist's Book Jam. You can also set up a private viewing of my work. Check out the "News" section of this website for upcoming shows.
