Try as I might, I cannot contain myself to work in only one medium. If I had to narrow it down, I would describe my work as the delicate expression of peaceful, loving and provocative ideas using paper and images. I work in ephemera to my pieces. Ephemera is juicy bits of found paper such as old magazine ads, postcards and photos. My favorite go-to for this paper is the Sunday New York Times magazine. I like the graphics and the weight of the paper. I also like transferring images to other mediums and working over them.
I work in encaustic wax, acrylics, oils, lithographic inks and watercolors. I make one-of-a-kind prints, monotypes, on my Conrad motorized printing press. My work has been shown at the Caldwell Galleries, Pacific Art League, Coastal Art League and numerous private showings.
I have done commissioned pieces for clients and they usually cry, joyfully, when they get their work. I take photographs as a way of exercising my creative eye and also as a source for my other artistic interests. Participating in photo challenges is a way for me to improve my photographic skills.
