About the Artist

She works as staff graphic designer for Seattle Central Community College, where she also teaches evening classes in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. She has also taught summer plein air watercolor journaling classes and organized and led a one-week watercolor journaling class to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
