I paint beautiful organic forms that flow, merge, and layer with vibrant spontaneity.

Turning inward, art is a familiar place of immersion and discovery, where I play and get lost within myself.
 

Art Leads the Way

 My art serves as a testament to the resilience of the human spirit, inviting others to join me on a journey of courage and authenticity as I continue to evolve and envision a brighter future.

Transforming the barren into the beautiful

I believe the best art expresses what we need most

I am inspired by reaching beyond myself towards others, into the nature of things

Jewelry: A Unique Expression

Handcrafted with care in Colorado, this unique jewelry is created by an innovative process to transfer the artwork onto each piece. A topcoat of eco resin finish, emulates the tactile sensation of raw stone or the smoothness of glass. Your jewelry will have a handmade charm, while promoting longevity through craftsmanship and thoughtful design.
