The artist uses many mixed media. Linocuts as large works on tile.  As many artists do she also fights for causes she believes in.  Also on the etsy site is a piece the artist made to show people the plight of the north american honey bee. Many farmers lost 1/3 to 1/2 of their bees.

The artist has a show currently at the Vincent Price Art Museum in Los Angeles.  Occasionally the artist gives workshops on paper cutting. 2 other artists working in this medium are Kara Walker and Nikki McClure. The artist is a wonderful printmaker and even makes linocuts and also gives workshops with that medium as well. A well known linocut artist is Don Gorvett.

Her public commissions are in public transportation around California.

Here is a time lapse piece of the artist making a large piece about bison skulls.
