I'm an artist who creates modern art with bold colors and a touch of nostalgia. I make collages, mixed media art, and hand-painted scarves.

My inspiration comes from simple things around me: the change of seasons, the color of the sky today, or the flowers blooming in my yard. I delight in them, turning the images into collages, paintings, and scarves.

It is as beautiful as it was pictured. It was so carefully wrapped and shipped fast. I could not have asked for better. Thank you so much.

Not just a journal, an original work of art I can carry with me everywhere. And the cache of the Moleskin history with some of the world's greatest artists is a delightful bonus.

About

Art Inspired by Nature and Nostalgia

My inspiration comes from my love of nature and memories of days gone by for inspiration. My recent work explores memories, especially distant memories: the feelings they evoke and the impressions they make as they come into focus. The results are colorful abstract paintings and collages that invite the viewer to form their own interpretations of the work.

I have been painting and drawing for as long as I can remember, always with a pencil and paper in my hands. That early childhood pastime has become a lifelong passion.

I majored in Studio Art and English Literature at Denison University. After graduating, I worked at art galleries and continued painting for several years. When I eventually took a job in another field, I stopped painting for more than a decade.

In 2005, I began painting again with a focus on painting with acrylics, inks, and watercolor, along with elements of collage and stitching.
