Two years ago I left the business world and decided it was time to make art full time. What a wonderful adventure it has been! My work includes mixed media, alcohol inks, painting, photography, digital art, jewelry and clay. I also find joy in teaching and seeing people get excited about art as they learn new skills.
I began watching tutorials on mono printing last year and purchased my first Gel Press plate and brayer. It didn’t take long for every inch of my workspace to be covered in prints and my love of print making was born. I use my prints in collage, mixed media and digital art.
My inspiration comes from being outdoors. I see beauty in the city streets as well as the countryside. It’s not unusual to find me wandering around taking photos of brick archways, sidewalks, and rusty metal as well as fields and flowers. I use creativity to surround myself with color and you will find my pieces are usually bright and bold. My work tends to fall into three categories:
I love to experiment when I’m working and always ask myself “What if…”. My art reflects the part of me that whispers “Let’s go out and play”.
