Artist's Statement  ::
I'm a self-taught contemporary mixed media artist and have created art from the time I was able to draw on the walls. I work in many different types of media in order to express myself. My passions are mixed media, abstracts, encaustics, and linoleum carvings. My hope is you will create your own story from your life experiences when viewing my work and the work will touch you on an emotional and intellectual level.
