"There is a garden in every childhood, an enchanted place where colors are brighter, the air softer, and the morning more fragrant than ever again" -- Elizabeth Lawrence

My childhood was happy and full of color and imagination. Most of my current visual language comes from these fun times in my life, growing up in 1970′s California. I like to create natural scenes, animals, words/text, and people, along with a fair amount of ridiculousness thrown in.

I use watercolor, pastel, colored pencil, oil and acrylic. Though I like to wander and play, I always come back to the freedom of using various dry media over watercolor. I crumple, spatter, and pour to achieve an organic look, then paint or draw over that with careful detail. I love mixing mediums and am always on a new technical adventure…

My art influences include: Sulamith Wulfing, Brian Froud, Alphonse Mucha, Susan Seddon Boulet, Tove Jansson, and Virgil Finlay.
