For me, the act of creating is more important than the creation itself. I feel that art; like love, is a verb rather than a noun.

Whether I am forging a piece of metal, dabbing paint to canvas, or snipping a shard of tile, the creative process takes me to a place of both passion and peace. I guess it is akin to an athlete being ‘in the zone’. I am a perpetual student, and love learning and experimenting in new media. Whether it be jewelry smithing, painting, print making or mosaics, I am most fulfilled when I am creating.

Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.

I am inspired by nature’s beauty, the lines of a building, and the complexity of an emotion. My subject matter evolves from what I see with my eye and feel with my heart. My work is about being in the moment- not about being perfect. Life is messy; you might as well jump in and have fun with it.

To quote Thoreau- "its not what you look at, its what you see".
