I have worked for a time in community arts & performance & spent time creating environmental arts around the world.
The ocean is a huge inspiration for my daughter and I. We love painting, environmental arts & walking on the beach for inspiration. We go out swimming & body boarding as often as we can, painting and drawing out on location with our dog ! ! ! !


I sometimes work with my collection of found deer antler. Antler is a material that is shed naturally by deer and can be worked beautifully in the right hands. So it is a great natural, sustainable alternative to plastics. This is a new process for me, inherited from my father. He made some beautiful carvings in Antler and also rams horn.
