Art transports me. Creating art brings me peace and freedom. I let everything go and art flows in collage, watercolor, acrylics, or mono print.
I hope that people are drawn into the life of the artwork. I am inspired by other artists and their techniques. All art is energizing. Nature, colors, textures, papers, and shapes activate my creativity. Themes of current events move me to create art that has a message of the times.
Watercolor, collage and acrylics are among my favorite mediums to work with. I also enjoy print making, creating original mono print and block print pieces.
I feel that art is always evolving and creating gives new breath to an artist.
I hope that you enjoy my art.
