My work involves using marks and/or words on paper or other surfaces, or using mixed-media to create a wide variety of emotions. I enjoy discovering images as I go along, versus creating a fully thought-out design.
I work with a wide variety of art materials and things such as tea bags, paper cups, lace, and fabric scraps. Some pieces are the size of artists trading cards. Others are much larger. I enjoy the play of values and lines against each other.
I often glue or stitch a wide variety of materials in creating my books or other work. Whatever suits the purpose. I hand-stitch, knot, or glue my surfaces together.
I sell original art, cards, magnets, and books. I offer workshops or private classes from pastel painting to visual journaling.
