I have over 30 years

of experience creating imaginative, memorable artwork.

"I have always made art. I approach my work in the studio as therapy- to examine social, spiritual, environmental and political issues through the lens of my internal microscope. What results are visual allegories- tall tales of solitude and companionship, using a repository of organic shapes and animal symbolism.


My dreams and subconscious drive the work forward in unexpected ways. Each piece starts as a drawing on paper where I can process raw emotions. I then digitize the art and begin adding layers of color and form, slowly building until the underlying drawing is like a dream that is forgotten upon waking.

My current toolkit includes my sketchbook, ink pens, an intuos tablet, iphone, laptop and the adobe creative suite. Working digitally, I can travel and work anywhere there is an electrical outlet and wifi. This gives me freedom to explore places and cultures- as I digest new experiences, my art is evolving."
