About Me

When Fall Promises New Beginnings

When Fall Promises New Beginnings

I disappeared for the summer and had so many opportunities to be with the people I love, to think and to create. What more can I ask for than time to be in the moment doing the things I love to do - being with my family and making art. Fall is here and it’s a time for transitions.

Why a Visual Journal is a Must in my Creative Process and Daily Routine

Why a Visual Journal is a Must in my Creative Process and Daily Routine

If there is one routine and creative process that shapes my entire studio practice it is my discipline with my visual journal. I keep a notebook journal where I write down my thoughts almost daily and I have a visual mood board where I hang photos, magazine cutouts and basically anything else that I find that is currently inspiring me. But the most important aspect of my studio practice is the work that I do in notebooks each and every day.

My Art History

My Art History

The other day at dinner a friend asked me whether I ever imagined that my career would take the turn it has taken.  I didn't even hesitate to answer the question.  "No.  I never imagined this."  My path to becoming a working artist has not been straightforward and there have been many forks and twists on the road to where I am now.  So it got me thinking about those forks and twists--everyone has a history and I really believe that I had to go through all the changes and turns in my life to get to this spot.
