In 1992 she and her husband Thomas, opened Kalypso Gallery, a fun spirited gallery with paintings, sculptures, and artier.
“My work is definitely soulful, sometimes mystical or cryptic, but always me. I am strong, a caregiver, a painter, designer, teacher, and a believer that the world can change for the greater good. I hope you can see these in these colors in my work”
