I was born and raised in Napa and returned for good in 2016. My art is often inspired by my Napa surroundings. I live in a 125 year old home in downtown Napa and my studio is an old storage/cistern building on the property. With extensive gardens lovingly tended by my husband and me, my art often depicts the “other” Napa — the lived experience outside of the vineyards and wineries. My art is usually realistic but I also enjoy creating an occasional abstract piece.
