Location: Santa Cruz, California
In 2005, my husband and I bought a very small 1000 square foot house in Santa Cruz, California to raise our growing family. Proximity to the ocean and a great elementary school trumped our desire for square footage! Our little Santa Cruz bungalow had no unique architecture, so I viewed it as a blank canvas. Over the past decade, while working as a marine biology professor, I have created abstract paintings for my family and friends while simultaneously restyling and curating our living space as our family has evolved. Modern art and design have always been my passion and hobby.
