My love for mandalas stems from my studies in Eastern religions and metaphysics. Painting mandalas brings me a sense of harmony and balance. They are created as prayers with specific intention. The intention is revealed in the title.
Professional Career - Market by Design
I enjoy a successful career in marketing, writing and design, working as graphic designer and public relations specialist. A special privilege is working as a business advisor at Napa Valley College Napa/Sonoma Small Business Development Centers. I help other artists with sales strategies and marketing tools.
Working in Education
Each year, I work with a fabulous team at Napa Valley College to produce the Youth Entrepreneurship Program and the Hospitality Symposium. Another joy is working with Napa Valley Adult Education on marketing, graphic design and public relations. My favorite task is writing student success stories.
