I combine found and re-purposed objects into subtle, delicate and inspiring compositions. Texture, color and contrast captivate me.
The overlooked fragments I gather together tell a story. My work conveys a reflective calmness, often laced with gentle humor, and has been described as "Zen" in nature.
The small details and intricacies invite the viewer to slow down and take the journey with me. Each piece is meditative in nature, and the resulting works reveal dedication and mindfulness.
Commercial venues included a line of notecards and T-shirts called "catnaps...", created from my cat drawings and "peas & carrots...", textile art created from drawings on fabric, using machine-sewn thread layers to create depth and character. In addition, I was also a freelance designer for Bath & Body Works, creating product bag prototypes, widening my creative boundaries and pushing my skill set to the next level.
Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile,
but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy…
