Stanwood Multimedia Artist/Sculptor
Born and raised in East Los Angeles, California, I travelled the world during an amazing 20 plus year military career. I fell in love with the Pacific Northwest after being stationed in Bremerton and later in Everett. When both my husband and I retired from the U.S. Navy we moved back to Washington to be closer to our children and grandchildren. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Sciences and a Master’s Degree in Psychology with a focus in Military Psychology.
I have always been drawn to creating and experimenting with multiple medias: charcoal, paint, cement, glass, wood, and metal to create unique artwork and sculptures. Using my skills developed as a Navy welder, I am able to expand my abilities to create using metal. Since retiring from the Navy in 2009, I have been fortunate to have worked and studied with various professional artists who have fueled my passion to create unique works of art. While living in Temecula, California I was able to attend the California Sculpture Academy where, studying under the tutelage of Brandon Roy, I was fortunate to have trained, designed, cast, and poured my first bronze sculpture using the “lost wax casting” method.
