Thirty years ago I started on my artistic path by enrolling in bookbinding and calligraphy classes. These early endeavors gave me a solid foundation in craftsmanship and design. Over the years as a professional artist I have explored paper marbling, silkscreening, graphic design, paper making, and collage. Although I still enjoy the craftwork, currently my creative focus is on painting. Through the use of color, composition and movement, I strive to paint mood and emotion. I delight in the spontaneous. Art happens.
