Love of Creation

I have been drawing and painting since childhood, working in pencil, watercolor, pastels, and acrylic. I received my BFA degree from the University of Arizona in 2002 and set up my home studio shortly after.

I have always had the drive and need to create. But besides the need for creating, I hope to evoke a response and participation from the viewer. Viewers add their own perspectives and experiences when interpreting artwork. The artist, together with the viewer, bring a work of art to its fruition. I have found Etsy to be a wonderful way to reach an incredibly wide audience. It's also wonderful to view other people's creations. It's a great community of "hand makers" and people who appreciate the "hand made”.

I create street art for Chalk Mural Art Festivals in Arizona and California. The original chalk or color pencil paintings created for the murals are available for sale in my shop. The tradition of the Chalk Art Festivals originated in 16th century Renaissance Italy when artists began transforming pavement into canvas using chalk. The artists were called “madonnari,” after their customary practice of creating chalk paintings of the Madonna. Today, artists worldwide are continuing this ancient form of expression. I have pictures in the About Section if you’d like to see the murals and more info.

    I work in my home studio in Tucson, AZ. I create paintings, drawings, and street art. I'm influenced by the beautiful desert surroundings where I was born and raised. My goal as an artist is to capture the spirit and energy of the world around me.
