I am an abstract artist.

 

I love painting, drawing and creating large scale installations. The theme of my work focuses on the emotional connection that people and experiences leave on us as humans. I am always excited to explore different media. I often create mixed media paintings, mixing elements together like ink and pencil together see how they react then manipulating them to form unique reticulations. 

I currently live in the bay area of California. After living in Kansas City, MO for eight years (because a lifetime of loving art led me to study printmaking and painting at the Kansas City Art Institute) I decided to return to California and be near the sea again.

 
 

While I have a deep love for printmaking, I truly love exploring different media and working with paper. My paper sculptures, large scale installations and paintings range from huge to tiny. They are my way of exploring and bringing a little beauty into the world. I have been lucky enough to have a few galleries show my installation work. My giant paper sculptures, some as big as twenty five feet long and twelve feet high have come to life. But I also love to work smaller, sometimes creating series of work the size of my hand.

Big or small, I love it all.

My main goal as an artist is to make things that people make people smile. Life goes by so quickly and things change in an instant. If I can make someone smile and appreciate life for just a minute, then I have made a small impact. 

 
 

I am thrilled to announce I have decided a portion of my sales will be donated to the American Civil Liberties Union, a worthy and helpful cause. When you purchase art you not only support a small business but you are helping the good guys fight the good fight when injustice occurs. If you want to make a donation and become a freedom fighter yourself, please feel free to donate here
