The Beauty of Art and Design to Inspire your World



 My passion is creating and displaying  art, organizing art installations in otherwise depressing, stressful,  sorrowful environments and bringing joy and peace and hope.  I also  serve as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) for children  in dependency and foster care.  Creating art with traumatized and  neglected children and painting their faces is a natural way for them to  communicate and have some reprieve.  Additionally I have taught art to  groups of adults with Alzheimer’s and Dementia.   Creating art with them triggered and restored lost memories.
