I am a visual artist living and working in Sonoma, CA. I was born in San Francisco, immersed in the arts and culture of the Bay Area and began my professional career by obtaining a BFA from the University of San Francisco and the Academy of Art College, then a MFA from Rhode Island School of Design, both in painting.

I met my husband Frank Cavaz, master glassblower, at RISD, and we had a glass blowing shop for 20 years. We designed a line of hand blown glass lighting that was sold through out the United States for residential and hospitality installations. During that time I made glass sculpture as it was the material at hand. My glass "chaplets" were exhibited in the Sonoma Valley Museum of Art and the Sonoma County Museum in Santa Rosa.

Today, my practice focuses on "lace paintings" which are acrylic on canvas, hyper-detailed works, balance the delicacy of perceived domestic and feminine crafts such as lace and doilys, with the weight of the relevant social issues of today, such as climate change, gun control, and feminine reproductive rights. The paintings have been exhibited throughout the US in museums and galleries.
