Art is my life. I was born a creative and have always had a strong interest in the arts. My mother sculpted in wood and stone, and was an early influence for my work. There were always art supplies around for me to play with, and I loved to paint and draw.
I studied art in school, but felt restricted by the constraints of traditional training. Over time I've developed a unique style using unconventional materials and experimentation to devise exciting techniques.
Because of concerns about the environment, I use repurposed, upcycled and natural materials for my work, including leftover house paint, discarded magazines, rust, contact leaf prints, and natural pigments and dyes.
I create art that speaks about the beauty and angst of our times. Themes for my work include the wonders of the natural world and the issues we face as our planet goes through an enormous transformation.
My art has been featured in solo and group exhibitions throughout the United States and abroad, and placed in numerous public, corporate and private collections. In addition, my work was selected for the American Embassy in Yaounde, Cameroon in conjunction with the Art in Embassies Program, sponsored by the U.S. Department of State.
It is my pleasure and joy to create inspirational art to enhance your life.
