She's done some acting, most recently in Battledogs in 2013 and in, um, Tremors 3: Back to Perfection in 2001.

These days, she's an accomplished painter and runs her own gallery in Napa Valley, California.

The painting on the left is called "Inner Light." And the one on the right is "First Bouquet."

She just recently announced that she's pregnant with her first child.
