Welcome to My Virtual Art Exhibition!

Artist Statement

Creating art fills me with an unsurpassable joy.  The psychedelic and surreal qualities of my work encourage the viewer to explore other places beyond their imagination.  My artwork combines elements of nature with abstract and surreal imagery.  I use saturated colors from the entire spectrum.  Flowing, organic formations invoke a feeling of peace, love and contentment.  I design my work to be observed from both close up and afar, as there are often tiny, complex details that only close examination would reveal.

I prefer to let my ideas determine the media to be used.  I consider myself to be a lifelong learner---I am continually expanding my knowledge base by exploring new media.  Some of my favorite media are painting (watercolor, airbrushing and acrylic), ceramics, sculpture, pyrography, drawing, pysanky and tie-dying.  I also create images through the use of digital photography.  I use macro lenses to capture insects and spiders on aesthetically pleasing backgrounds.  I also manipulate my artwork and photography in Photoshop, often bringing it to life through animation.

Simply click on the photos or words below to see examples of work in each media.
