I am a self taught sculptor and painter. My original works are inspired by the world around me. I like creating pieces that range from whimsy to the more serious aspects of the human condition. I find great pleasure from the process that allows me to share my vision through my art.
As sculptor, each time I take a piece of wax or clay in my hand I am impatient with anticipation of what is hiding in there. As an emerging encaustic painter, I am finding new expression in color.
From an early age I was encouraged to “Get a good job.” So I spent the first part of my working life in Corporate America, cultivating my music and art as hobbies. Originally from Seattle, I moved my family to Whidbey Island in search of a different lifestyle. Still searching, I raised my family, completed a Masters Degree in Psychology, ended my corporate affiliations, and started my studio. I’m taking advantage of this new opportunity to embrace my art.
