I decided I wanted to be an artist and express myself when I was six years old. My art has always been an integral part of my life, the two cannot be separated. At present I combine not only my creative skills and talents, but I also bring an eclectic spiritual practice and multicultural philosophy to bear witness on my art. Another major element of inspiration is my lifelong love of nature. Currently I create large scale abstract acrylic paintings, smaller scale colored pencil illustrations and I photograph the great outdoors. These images are then scanned and transformed into other products such as postcards, magnets, bags, and decals. For me it is the experiential process, the call of freedom, the sensation of impermanence and change, and the expansive nature of the human consciousness stepping into the unknown that forever moves me forward. I love my studio and I love making art!
