My life experiences are explored and discovered through art. When working, I do not have a finished piece in mind, but an interest in seeing where the process of making will lead. I follow each impulse to the next, allowing the investigation to unravel and reveal itself. When I’m lucky–when I trust the processes–I experience a flow and receive what feels like a gift. Although my work is personal, I believe it taps into the universal, and I am looking to connect with others and myself more deeply.


These are words I associate with my work: intuitive, awake, un-stuffed, humorous, rhythmic, disturbing, engrossing, sexual, figurative, colorful, unique and complex.


It is my hope that you will enjoy experiencing the work as much as I enjoy making it.
