Artist Statement

I’m influenced by everyday shapes and forms (organic and otherwise)

and giving them a whimsical twist of imagination.

My own interpretation with the use of color and texture is the fun stuff.  I even embrace my oops  and the occasional slip of the wrist. 

To me, it adds movement and dimension and a visual interest

to my final piece.

Being up in the mountains is certainly inspiration enough.

Nature, they say, is good for the soul. And, “happy art” (as I often hear my work described)….is even better.
