Artist Statement

For me, all visual art methods extend from the act of drawing. My work in printmaking, painting and other media is inspired by animals, plants, biology, psychology, philosophy, mysticism, comics and poetry. My latest dream is to learn animation and explore approaches to art installation with an ecological theme. As a teacher my goal is to provide an inspiring and supportive space where students immerse themselves in observation, exploration, and creative response.
