Originally growing up in Connecticut, she later moved all around California, working as a chef at several restaurants (to pay the bills & art supplies) till she finally settled in Santa Cruz, Ca. which she now has been a local for 20 years. Her specialty is creating unique Hand Painted Tapestries. She also crafts artsy handmade gifts that incorporate her designs on them.
