About

Here's a bit about me and my shop...

I create small collages on paper and larger works on wood panels, canvas and metal. A lot of my art has been inspired by my meditation practice. I love to travel and experience different cultures and put those feelings into my art. I create narratives by merging symbols of inner peace with images from everyday life and Art History. I create backgrounds and worlds for these images to interact and it is my hope that these works may also speak to the viewer in a very personal and positive way.

If you see something you like and would like something similar in a larger format, please contact me about a custom order.

A little bit about my background:
I studied painting, drawing, photography, and art history in the 70s and 80s, earning a BFA in Art History and a BA in Studio Art from The University of Texas at Austin.

After graduating with a degree in Art History in the 1980s, I managed an alternative art gallery, (Data Gallery) and accompanying artist studios located in the California Hotel on E. 7th Street in Austin. It was a labor of love but not very profitable. I put my artistic pursuits (mostly) on hold while supporting myself with a career in technical writing. I survived many reorganizations until I couldn’t and became underemployed until I was able to retire.

A lot has changed with acrylics since I was in Art school and it’s exciting to experiment with new mediums and techniques. I just like to create. I am having fun rediscovering my creative side and making art to share.

I stay engaged with the art community by participating in workshops, visiting museums, attending art shows, and submitting my work to be included in exhibits, magazines, and books.

And one last thing: Occasionally, I like to sell and find new homes for objects that I like.
