My Journey Through Art

"Making a difference starts at home..."



I have always seen the potential in an object. As far back as I can remember, it was extremely gratifying being creative. I can remember being in awe in a simple object as a branch, leaf, or wildlife. As I advanced through the years it would be my emotions about life that would inspire me the most.


My father, a film editor for Disney, Paramount, and finally Universal, was a huge influence in my life being that he instilled in us a love for classical music, opera, and movies. My mother an artist herself also had a huge influence in my creative journey. She sewed, painted, embroidered, gardened, and instilled in us a love for nature!


My sister and I spent many hours practicing our instruments. She played the clarinet and I played the flute. She worked with clay and I worked with watercolors, charcoals, & pastels.  We encouraged, admired, and pushed each other to keep up with our creative side. We were each others biggest fans!  


All that I have mastered and learned as an artist has been 

through hard work, study, and talented friends around me that shared their skills and talents! I am a fan of workshops and have listed some that I have had the privilege of learning from. 


It has been a privilege to be mentored in skills such as

wheel throwing, glass blowing, welding, Raku, lime/marble 

based plasters, soy resins/recycled glass, and much more. 

Current works are paintings & Murals exclusively using aged slaked lime/marble based plasters.....and clay paints.
