She graduated from San Diego State with a BA in Art and now lives in Aguila, AZ, where she has a studio. She also raises horses and is an active rodeo participant.
About West of Center: The artistic talents of the Wickenburg community are highlighted in the 6th annual West of Center exhibition and sale. Curated by the Wickenburg Art Club, 100% of proceeds from sales benefit members of the Art Club, which offers year round opportunities for artists of all ages and experience levels to explore an array of creative pursuits. Weekly demonstrations are held by WAC members in the Learning Center on Saturdays from 1 – 3 p.m. throughout the run of the show.
