I enjoy playing with a variety of media and seeing where things take me. Taking inspiration from the great wide open, I am constantly learning and experimenting. Inspiration often comes as a series, with repeating themes or design elements such as birds, spirals, circles or colors. My camera is a constant companion and I incorporate my photography into mixed media works or paint from photos I have taken. My fellow artists are another great source of inspiration and I am lucky enough to have a diverse group to create with regularly. I am currently working on a series of wildlife paintings from my photos. The totem series incorporates the symbolism of the animal into the mixed media background.
