I started drawing/painting my symbolic imagery professionally around 1996, selling my artwork
in a couple of local stores here in Long Beach, California. In 1999, I took an 11-yr hiatus to
concentrate on other creative endeavors as well as my transcription business. In 2011, I was
ready to return to my original form of artistic expression: painting and drawing. I use both
colored pencil on paper and acrylic on canvas and wood.
My husband Nick and I opened our studio, Luna Rising, in 2014. We then began making
reproductions, prints, cards, and wearable art made from my originals. These are sold from our
studio, at outside art shows, and in various local stores.
In March of 2017, I began an offshoot project called LUNA upRISING project, in which I make
small originals for donations only; 100% of the proceeds goes to six local progressive
organizations two times a year (currently DSA-LB, LBAPN, LGBTQ Center, Californians for
Justice, East Yard Communities for Environmental Justice and MFSO). I am happy to note that
I’ve been able to donate a few thousand dollars since that time and continue to do so.
My art is in homes and businesses across the U.S., London, Saudi Arabia, as well as in a
converted ancient Buddhist temple in Nara, Japan.
