About

I enjoy working in many styles, and in doing so I have found a style that is all my own. Whether I am faithfully reproducing a design from an ancient standing stone, or creating something new, my art comes from a place part primitive, part modern, where anything is possible. It's a place that exists inside all of us.

I painted my first box in 1998 as a Mother's Day gift.

Emptiness is just emptiness, a hole. But a box is emptiness waiting to be filled with something precious.

It's my hope that in the commissioned work I do, I create a worthy vessel for hope, for memories, for love, for sheer joy. Expressing my clients' ideas with my art gives me great pleasure. Each box is created for a different purpose, and so each is truly unique. I put all of my creative force into each one so that everything from pattern to color expresses the theme they have selected.

It is a touching line of work, and a humbling one.
