My work has always been eclectic and diverse, owing to my many interests and travels. I enjoy creating art papers to layer with paints and inks to bring back a memory or set a mood. Always a student, I love learning from other artists and the great outdoors. It’s important to me to borrow from reality to convey a sense of time and place in both my representational and abstract works of art.
