“I have always loved looking at art; each piece is a conversation and an adventure. Several years ago, I started creating my own art. Since I am self-taught, I take every opportunity to play and explore with new mediums and techniques. While I work in many mediums, I am starting to focus on altered books, print making, textiles, collage, assemblage, and acrylic painting. Experiencing joy in creating continues to be my primary goal.”
