In 1987 I attended the Academy of Art University in San Francisco focusing my studies on illustration, during my time at the Academy of Art I discovered watercolor and fell in love with this medium and became a full time watercolorist and instructor. From 1991 to 2001 she opened an art school of her own, "Emerald Lake Art Academy", in Redwood City, California. In 2002 I concentrated on developing a new technique in watercolor, painting from dark to light, and have found that my students thrived on this unique technique, and could see there paintings develop quicker.
