Hi, I teach groups of all ages in their home or in an art/creative shop. I'm a painter, printmaker and illustrator. I make, sell, and teach art. I'm originally from Northern Ireland and have traveled all over the globe, settling in California for now, with my active duty Navy husband, and two Southern California kids. I studied fine and applied arts at the University of Ulster, with a bachelor's degree, and worked in corporate, tv, and film in Ireland. In 2006 I traveled to New Zealand for two years. Whilst traveling, I discovered my love for the ocean and nature, and so my illustrations detail that. My passions are family, drawing, the ocean, surfing, snow, conservation, and just trying to encourage everyone to protect our beautiful planet from greed and waste.
