Prior to becoming a fine artist and designer in 2007, I was a branding and marketing communications consultant. I am grateful for all of the opportunities I was given and the joy of helping so many businesses and individuals define and design a brand image and identity. However, six years ago, I knew it was time to open a new door. Intuitively, I committed to the life of being a full time designer and artist.
In 2012, after painting and selling Asian inspired, landscapes, seascapes and floral art for five years throughout the U.S., I re-dedicated my art direction to become a shoe designer, illustrator & painter.
I don't regret taking this long journey of 30+ years in defnining a clear vision of how and what I can contribute through my artistic talents. I love applying my skills as a digital artist and combining them with a love for shoes and handbags. I wake up everday with the joy knowing I can create and play anyway I choose to express as a designer and artist. I've returned to a childhood passion and am watching it come alive!
