I live in San Jose, CA, with my husband, but grew up in Sacramento. Arrived here looking for work after graduating from UCB in the early eighties. Our daughter is a UCSB student, which gives me a chance to get out see the world occasionally - this year it's Paris! I teach art at my neighborhood elementary school (nearly 1000 students) and often find cool ideas and inspiration for lessons and projects (and costumes for our theatrical productions) when I travel. I like to cook, but often mess things up, because I'm doing it while I'm
testing a new art lesson out on the kitchen table at the same time.
