About Me


New Never Boring

Welcome Cowgirls and Cowboys!

Here is the brief scoop: As a media fundraising professional, I have created revenue for projects and biz I love, raising business out of the red into the black with biz building strategy, cementing partnerships and designing publicity campaigns and sponsorship events. The success list is long including The Tucson Museum of Art, Tucson Botanical Gardens, Fourth Avenue Street Fair, Tucson Gem and Mineral Show, Tucson Weekly's Best of Tucson, Club Crawl Music Festival, Tucson International Film Festival, Tucson Mall, Foothills Mall, The Reid Park Zoo, National Association of Women Business Owners, Art!!! Gallery's Tucson, Tucson Studio Tour, La Encantada Tucson, FOX11 24/7 TV, Tucson Visitor's and Convention Bureau, The Loft Cinema and many more. 

As an Editor, journalist and National Commercial Advertising Executive I painted ideas into real success. Modeling integrity and impact,  drawing outside the lines with the BIG box of crayons was always my favorite past time. I am a "Social Documentary Artist" with an executive background in TV, news, publicity, advertising, interactive media, fine art, design, marketing  and journalism. My study was at the University of Michigan, Tucson Museum of Art and University of Arizona. I began designing and entering art contests for the first time at Seventeen magazine and was a President of ART!!! Galleries in Tucson. As founder and editor of MokshaLife Magazine and JillyLIVE TV, I am always excited by what is new and create for original thinkers and fashionistas who do not want to be like everyone else.

Messy to Magic

I love all toolboxes.

Variety inspires my fashion design, art and writing. My favorite stores are hardware, display, office supplies and fabric. Nature and animals created and expressed in all mediums excite my spirit. Illustration and words within my new publishing projects to jewels and stones that represent life's energy are translated to fashion and fabric to interior design. I work in watercolor, pen and ink, acrylics, oils, photography, film, video, canvas, charcoal, yarn, bronze, printmaking, and all the way to website development and sculpture. I believe in independent thought and create limericks and my writing to expand my vision. Each idea unfolds through meditation and nature's inspiration. 

As an artist I may choose to draw cartoon's that express a point of view, paint and photograph the southwest lifestyle scene, illustrate a storyline or create logo's that make a brand statement. As a fashion designer I want each person who wears my work to feel empowered and happy.

Power Punch Splash

Elegance and grace with a spicy wit.

I do not hold back on creating a more bold approach to creativity. One thing I am really excited about is 3D printmaking, there are so many new technologies coming aroung the bend that no one knows about yet and I want to be a part. I am an "Artist Activist" who is preparing to publish, speak and create a universe beyond knowing in the southwest desert. I am a cowgirl living a kick ass lifestyle that is making a difference. My art is colorful and speaks truth more than just a pretty picture on a wall. 

My new YouTube Channels are coming soon and I am on Vimeo creating new works. Everything from my life is getting a new look!

What is a Social Documentart Artist?

For one thing I always have my cameras at hand and I am shooting life in real time. It all began with my first Brownie as a young girl scout observing and creating for school, theater and art class.

Now I promote ideas, products and special events with multi-media publicity to showcase talent, create fundraisers and launch ideas beyond knowing.

Mission statement – Live with integrity and balance, find your bliss and jump while naked in your truth.

My focus is "The Art of Biz and Well-being" featuring women in business making a difference in their communities and neighborhoods. I am an 'Artist Activist' with a back ground in successfully raising awareness, revenue, and spirit with wit and wisdom, sassy consciousness and a kick ass attitude.
