Artist Statement & Biography



Artist Statement



Art is my escape, a way down the rabbit hole, and my pursuit of passion.   I seek to capture the relationship all things have with nature, as my mind plays with the color and movement of everyday objects.

I enjoy working with acrylic paints,  mediums and textures.  It is my pleasure to present to you paintings  that reflect my observations and perceptions of things that fascinate me. I hope you enjoy my art as much as I have enjoyed creating it.
