Biography & Artist Statement
I have been granted a beautiful gift…It is the love of art since a very young age. There has been a consistent thread of events and opportunities that have been placed in front of me to always work steadily at my craft. I evolve into each new project enriched from the preceding one. I see myself dying a student in this creative world I have been so generously placed in. I have taught what I know and just when that is put in another's hands something brand new opens like a flower before me. I have a passion for combining all I know and finishing the piece with a new accent. I am a creature of NO habit when it comes to my work. I like to twist and toy with all available means and come up with a flavor I’ve never made before.
