So often, we enter spaces only to realize we have been transformed and inspired simply by the presence of art. It can direct the mood and adjust the energy of any room. Aspiring to connect people in that way, I continually try to embody that energy and project it into my work. My intention for each piece is to resonate with the viewer and bring the space to life. Encaustic paintings, drawings, oil and acrylic painting, woodworking, and screen printing; my creative spirit and medium are ever-changing as I interpret the world around me. I can best express my artistic passion when unbound by fears and unwritten rules; allowing myself the freedom of creative expression enables me to create with the end in mind. In the infamous words of George Bernard Shaw, "You see things; and you say 'Why?' But I dream things that never were; and I say 'Why not?'"
