My life has been amerced in art since I was a child staying up late into the night working on art projects. Art had always nourished. I love both the process of creation and the connection to the people who live with my artwork. I spent 23 years working in clay, 10 years as a freelance textile designer, and then 6 years ago I gave my full attention to collages and paintings. I love exploring the possibilities of these mediums.

These collages take the viewer on a journey into a lush dimensional world of color, textures and shapes. Each piece has an underlying feeling of movement or flowing which helps to unify the elements in the work.
