About

I am a mixed media artist who grew up loving paper, fabric, paint brushes and paint. I made plenty of messes along my journey of seeking creative outlets growing up. Art saved my life in more ways than one. I truly believe that the act of creating something can be a healing process. I eat up learning any and all techniques that I can utilize in my art. Over the years, I have developed a strong interest in paper art, fabric art, silk screening, clay, & photography. I am always growing as an artist and creative person. I esp. love to make/bind books (writing and art journals, wedding books, registry books of all kinds), cards, and I love to work with leather, metal and glass as of late.

I have done commissioned work and have sold my handmade journals in Beverly Hills at Suzi Finer's Artworks and Gifts store! Suzi rocks by the by! I've also had one of my wedding books published in a 3 page spread…

I have done commissioned work and have sold my handmade journals in Beverly Hills at Suzi Finer's Artworks and Gifts store! Suzi rocks by the by! I've also had one of my wedding books published in a 3 page spread in SOMERSET STUDIO'S WEDDINGS 2 book. Other artwork and cards of mine have appeared in several other publications, as well.

In my book binding, I utilize everything from leather to velvet to silk and whatever you can cover a book with...oh, and of course, paper. I use fabrics, leathers and papers that I have gathered from all over the world through the years....thanks to the invention of the internet...what a great tool! Much of the fabric I use has been hand dyed by moi...another favorite addiction.

I have made cards, art or books for the following folk, Jack Black, Rosanne Barr , Teri Garr, various cast and crew of Will & Grace, Luckie Louie, well, a bunch of people who are way cool and dang funny.

Most of my cards and especially books/journals are ONE OF A KIND. I try to upcycle as much as I can. I save the leftover bits of thread, fabric, leather, etc. from my creations to utilize in future projects.

I just keep moving where the wind blows me creatively and I am game on trying new things and growing as an artist and as a person.

Bring it on!
