Massage therapist and artist, my favorite thing to do is use my hands to create things. Most of my inspiration for art comes from nature and wildlife. I was born and raised in Ashland Oregon and lived many years of my childhood in the woods outside of town playing make-believe games outdoors and interacting with my pets.
From a young age, I was presented with many mediums and avenues for creating art. Although my strong suits are oil painting, watercolor painting and pencil realism. Over the years, I have also dabbled in pottery, sculpture, beading, collage, figure drawing, monoprinting, jewelry making, sewing, and leatherworking.
I try to dedicate time to my art every day as well as organize a weekly figure drawing group. I do art for the process: it allows me to slow down, drop in, and be present. What I love about the finished piece is sharing it. I am fascinated by other people’s observations and the symbolism they weave into the pieces I have created, connecting them to their own lives.
I sell prints and greeting cards of my work and do commissions.
