As an experimental mixed media semi-abstract artist and photographer, there is nothing more
exhilarating to me than tapping into what I call "a collective stream of consciousness", a place
where unlimited possibilities exist.
My journey as an artist began over 20 years ago painting colorful semi-abstract Southwest landscapes in oils and watercolor. Captured by collage and mixed media, I began incorporating personal symbols, found and transparent images, photography and sometimes writing into my creations. My love of nature and interest in photography, psychology, and
architecture still impacts the content in my work, but my art has changed dramatically over the last few years. Although I still love to paint, my "paint brush" is now often through the lens of a camera, iPhone or iPad.
My own shadow image can be found in much of my recent work with an outcome often surreal and mysterious - a personal signature allowing me to become an observer as well as a participant in my own creations,
and helps me tell my story to the viewer.
