Artist Statement

As an illustrator I enjoyed having a purpose for my work. I enjoyed the collaboration and audience inherent in that line of work. Now, I mostly create work documenting what I see around me that I want others to share through my eyes. I want to capture as much life that amuses me as possible. I work in pencil, pen and ink watercolor, gouache, oil, mixed-media collage/assemblage and dyes on silk. I paint on location and in my studio.
