Modern abstract art created to complement all modern interior styles.

In 2005, my husband and I bought a small 1000 square foot house in Santa Cruz, California. Proximity to the ocean and a great elementary school trumped our desire for square footage! Over the past decade while working as a marine biology professor, I have reworked our living space as our family evolved. I have spent years styling my space; creating and curating abstract art around those rooms.

In 2014, I chose to leave biology behind to focus on my art, design and my house full of boys (my husband, two sons, and our male pitbull!) I opened House of Boys Art + Design soon after to pursue my passion for art and modern design. 

I created an abstract art collection inspired by current design trends and colors. My abstract paintings are modern, bold, feminine and colorful. I am inspired by trends in fashion, decor, garden design, architecture, and the ocean.
