I am originally from Phoenix, Arizona where I learned oil painting while very young. My art creation and education continued until college where I earned a BS in Physics and published superconductor research. After many years performing technical work, I was inspired through meditation to return to art.
These highly stylized colored pencil and ink pieces are inspired by world peace, healing, Buddhism, meditation, shamanism, prophecy, nature, and myth. Some pieces are inspired by Joseph Campbell's Hero's Journey involving adventure, revelation, victory, and a transformation in the hero or heroine.
My art ties many ideas together to tell stories and inspire recognition of one’s own healing abilities or hero’s journey.
I love using inspiration and my own experiences to create something unique. I hope my art will bring forth your own memories of beauty, joy, and happiness and all the times you have overcome and succeeded.

Decorative Fine Art
My decorative, fine art pieces are created using techniques similar to other artists. I add my own unique twist to how I create art.

SunFlower is painted on two layers of MDF. This is a Cloisonne style mixed with other techniques to create unique, original, fine art. The acrylic leaves were built and added to the art as part of the process.
