My love of the landscape and all things wild strongly influences me in a very personal and provocative way.
I strive to recreate my slow and steady love affair with the natural world so that I can give others a glimpse into my vision.
I was raised in Michigan where my parents instilled in me a deep love of the beautiful landscapes and the wildlife that surrounded me there. Currently I reside in Northern Michigan where I am fortunate to see stars nestled in the pines every night.
I am keenly interested in light ,shadows and Color and how I can use them to relate a mood for the viewer. I sincerely want my work to take the viewer somewhere they did not expect.
I love that we all see different things when we look at art and It is exciting to know that when someone looks at my work it may be stirring an emotion or a thought that may be different from my intent.
I have taught fine art, sculpture, photography and ceramics at the middle and high school level.
I am very blessed to be taking this journey and hope that you enjoy my work.
