Originally self-taught, I was encouraged to evolve my creativity by family members who were artistically inclined. Initially my work revolved around my great love for animals - pets and wildlife. Later, an increasing sensitivity to color and form found me working more and more intuitively, - abstractly - spiritual landscapes coming to life with a seeming will of their own. After each abstraction - I would write poetry to pour forth what I felt from the painting - painting it into language. I decided to take art classes, painting, life drawing, works on paper, art history, photography, etc. seeking to learn more about art, the works of other artists and to professionalize and improve my own painting skills. I eventualy earned my Masters degree in Public Art, my thesis developed a theory for using aesthetics as an epistemological basis for a theory of public ethics. It also blessed me with my first one person art show. I enjoy photographing nature and cats, and exploring spiritual topics through photos with digital painting and photo fusion. I took more classes in surface design and have developed my own dying techniques using natural dyes and enjoy upcycling clothing.

Three of my digital paintings received an Honorable Mention in my first art contest I entered, The Artistic Circle: HEALING ART 2 - 2012: The Fountain of Life, Refresh, and Renewal!!!!
