I am a self taught artist. Proud to be "unschooled, raw, etc." I host private showings and also sell my art online and in small, local businesses. I work in a wide range of styles and mediums and am happy to take commission work.
One day, while walking my dogs, I looked down and saw a Sabal Palm frond. I imagined it as a whimsical creature. I took it home, painted it and hung it up. Inspired, I painted more and currently have them for sale at the Sarasota Breakfast House as inexpensive, souvenir art.

As an artist, I enjoy working in most mediums for 2D art. I have just started sculptural works and jewelry. I will take commission pieces, please contact me as to your interests and pricing. Also, I can do custom framing and furniture refinishing as well.
As a child, my parents encouraged me to explore my creativity in both the visual arts and dance. Unschooled, I dove into any medium that I could get my hands on; paint, clay, woodworking, fabrics, etc. My love of the arts never faded. I still enjoy working in different mediums and find that my choice of medium, depends on the subject matter.
I use many different mediums, such as watercolors, acrylics, and pastels. I believe that working in a single medium is restrictive to my artistic process. Each idea manifests in its own individual style, so my works vary.
I'm inspired by what I see within my subject, normally through the eyes, which are windows to the soul; the beauty, joy, pain, passion.
