Art is in my DNA. Whether it be abstract painting, illustrative projects, photography or plastic bags.

Painting (abstraction)
Abstraction is a way of working from a place of freedom, exploration and life energy in color and texture. Each painting a journey in texture, movement and breath in transparent layers of pigment. A dance between the natural and inner worlds bubbling onto a surface.

Painting (realism)
Drawing from what I've seen, world events, cultural, personal or art history influences are subjects I continue returning back to.

Plastic Transformed
Crocheted plastic works which exemplify my belief in sustainable reuse - walking softly upon the earth. Plastic bags, a by-product of our "throw away" society, are turned into ritualistic objects.
