I work in a playful yet sophisticated manner using my artistic process for appreciating the everyday. I express my joy of life with line energy and shape consciousness. I’m a seeker keeping the doors of my eyes open and waiting for the gifts that come from the Giver through the experience of daily life. I translate my findings in drawing, painting, printmaking, words, photography, 3D work, collage, mixed media, and traditional media such as oils and watercolor. Making art is my way of glorying in life and the creator. Oysters make pearls, snails make shells, honeybees make wax, and I make art.
