Artist Resume

My 2020 Body of work: "Femme de Courage Extraordinaire" was initiated as an artist in residency with Art Ventures in Half Moon Bay, California. The gallery is located in Menlo Park, California where remaining paintings from "Conversations in Form"  a body of work I developed 20 years ago, exhibited  during this time period January 15-February 15 2020 at the Art Ventures gallery in Menlo, Park, California.

A quick highlight about 'volunteerism as a part of my practice and documentation of my time working and living with Thai Forest monks and nuns in an undisclosed part of Thailand.
