- I grew up in Vermont and Colorado. After college in Vermont ( where I studied art, I spent years on Cape Cod, w/ intermittent winters in New York City, Boston, Utah and New Mexico. Moved to Petaluma in 1988 w/ my husband Daniel Rilleau and our son, Jesse.
A friend brought me a roll of canvas and some oil paints from Goodwill about 16 yrs. ago and I started painting. Both of my parents were painters, so it seemed a very natural step for me.
I’ve been living in the town of Tomales for 7 years.
