In my two decades as a commercial artist I've created giant vegetables for a Washington DC Museum, helped create two dozen tiny hot air balloons for a Vegas show and designed alien bird-men for Star Wars games. I write and illustrate children's books and comics. My art has been exhibited all across the U.S. and in Argentina, the Czech Republic, Russia, the UK, Italy, Spain, and is part of the permanent collection of the Aswara Gallery in Malasyia. I teach painting, drawing and sculpture through schools and community centers around the valley. Lately I make a lot of masks for photo shoots and events through my mask shop on etsy. I'm also a mom and a wife and a resident of the desert city of Phoenix, Arizona.
My husband, Mike Dubisch is a cult figure in underground horror comics, Dungeons & Dragons role -playing games and most recently H.P.Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos. Beginning a quarter century as a cartoonist and illustrator in his mid teens, he has created Star Wars toys, colored comics, animated DVD covers for the World Wrestling Federation, and designed a million cartoon cockroaches for MTV. His work is held in the permanent collection of The Museum of Cartoon and Comic Art. He's a professor at the San Francisco Academy of Art University online and regularly designs monsters, and characters for film and T.V. Together we've had three children and wandered the across the 7 countries.
My oldest daughter, Chloe Dubisch, is a typical teenage girl in that she worries way too much about her hair on a daily basis. She's atypical in that she reads a book a week, is an incredible storyteller herself, and an excellent artist in her own right. Her work's been in several galleries here in Phoenix as well as in Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia. She's also quite a good actress, is a junior at Stephen's college in Missouri, and spending this semester studying abroad at Glasgow University in Scotland.
Naomi is the youngest and is a freshman at the local high school. She's studying guitar again and is finally back in a Spanish class this year, for the first time since we lived in Argentina! She's also a great artist and cook, and loves movies. She's studied film making for the last three summers at the ID tech film camps on A.S.U.'s Tempe campus. She's involved with her youth group at the UU Church and the Gay, Straight Alliance at school.
Oscar is our dog of over five years. Dramatically rescued from certain death in a busy intersection in downtown Phoenix, Oscar has stuck around since that fateful day that he jumped in our car. He enjoys laying on the couch and following me around, and for some reason really likes rice. A typical desert dog, he likes to lay in the sun, even when it's 110ºF.
Gigi is our newest family member. He's a little black kitten with big personality. He enjoys watching birds on TV, climbing the screen door, and chasing Oscar's tail, much to Oscar's chagrin.
