As a self-taught artist with a multi-media background, I find my inspiration in nature and wildlife that provides me a sense of calm, contentment and amazement of what is often taken for granted in this fast paced, technology-driven world in which we live, and reminds me how quickly things change with the seasons, lifespan and our environment.

My work is representational and connects me to the planet in a spiritual sense of belonging and purpose. I tend to work on subject matter that is relatable, that may evoke feelings of familiarity, heighten ones' awareness, or link to a fond memory of a time or place.

In my travels, I frequently photograph interesting plant life, rocks and landscape views to use as reference in my designs and art. My design process is very organic, and often reflect recurring patterns seen in nature. Whether used in my fused glass enamel paintings, graphite drawings, watercolors, pastels, or scratchboard art, these reference images trigger the exhilaration of being in that place at a specific time, which in turn recalls my inspiration and vision for a new work of art and the cause for me to have stopped and taken the photograph.
