There’s nothing more delightful than dipping one’s hands into a tin full of castaway buttons and letting them drip through your fingers, the sound similar to shells rolling to shore on a wave. I reveled in this as a child. The tin held so many possibilities.

That’s how I feel every time I approach a blank page…exciting and often times frightening but always with the promise of possibilities.

My current artistic expression uses common plastic bags destined for landfill that are artfully transformed into richly layered abstracts. Always ready to explore a new medium, I also work in textile design, encaustic, acrylic, oil, cold wax, assemblage, and collage.

I hope you enjoy looking at my work!
