After graduating from KCAI with a painting degree and working at Hallmark Cards, I co-founded with my husband a handmade paper company called Shizen Design. The company designs and sells screen print papers from India.  I use these papers in my mixed media paintings. The merging of the exotic surface patterns and the culture of India has imparted designs that blend together my history and cultural experiences to create a truly international and unique vision in my artwork.
