Artists Statement & Bio:

Artist Statement:

I create what I see in my minds Third Eye. I want my thoughts, feelings, joys, loves and fears of life to be touchable, seen and shared by the viewer. It is not always going to be pretty images. Sometimes it will be art that will shake your soul, distrub your well being  and make one think about their life and the journey they are on.

Creative Mediums:

I use Photography, both digital and scanned film negatives, some that are hand painted. I also work with mixed media paintings and create large installation pieces, using acrylic paints, found objects and text. I create what I call my Wall Books, which can be as large as 24"x48" , as well as handmade photo & poetry books and  self published books that are available on Amazon and through my web bookstore. These books include essays, artwork, photographs and original Haiku Poetry. In addition I work with Air Dried and Polymer Clay that is backed in an electric oven to create music boxes, jewelry, wall masks and my  flying pigs.
