About the artist
I have been an art educator for nearly twenty years, teaching drawing, painting, and photography to students in preschool through twelfth grades, including various summer and after-school programs.
Over the last two decades, I have also worked intermittently in postwar Bosnia-Hercegovina, and in 2013, I received a “Heroes of Marin” award for co-founding “From the Bay to the Balkans,” a summer service-learning program for high school students from the Bay Area to collaborate with Bosnian youth in a town 50 km north of Sarajevo. Art, sports, and English language learning were key components of the program.
I am currently a facilitator at DrawBridge, an arts program for homeless children in the Bay Area. I am a member of the San Francisco Women Artists collective and I live in Fairfax, California with my family.
