I am an illustrator who works primarily with drawing and mixed media.  I see my Art as part of a quest to work for change in this worId and so I call myself an "Artivist". I am inspired by the words of the Talmud that say, "Do not be daunted by the world's grief. Do justly, now. Walk humbly now. You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to abandon it."

I received a Bachelor of Fine Art in Illustration from Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design in Colorado. I live in Tucson, Arizona with my husband Franco and our cat, Eugene.

The central purpose of each life is to dilute the misery in the world.
