About the Artist

artistatwork

In 1999, I retired from 25 years at Butte College creating and teaching such courses as Yoga, Mind, & Consciousness, Holistic Living, Psychology of Dreams, Psychology of Creativity and Intuition and from 12 years as a Transpersonal Psychotherapist in private practice. I currently teach "Painting From the Heart: Enhancing Your Inner Artist, Taming Your Inner Critic" at various art centers. It was a series of floral dreams as well as my realization of color as a healing force that led me to begin to paint in watercolor in 1982. 

I have exhibited my work in many one woman shows and numerous group exhibitions, including 7 national juried shows.
