I'm most inspired by...


Strong Light


Cast Shadows


Vivid Color


Found Objects



When I enter the studio it is with a sense of excitement, anticipation and play. Whether I am painting or collaging or assembling it is without a preconceived notion of how the piece will look when completed. This allows me to react and respond to what is happening on the surface. I can begin a piece and then follow where it takes me. I ask myself "what if?" a lot. I learn from every artistic endeavor and use that new found knowledge to start at a different place each time I create.
