I love to communicate and tell stories through my art. It's been a huge part of how I express myself on a very personal level. Throughout my life I have always been dabbling in some sort of creative project. Finally around 1998 I started painting and creating my mixed media pieces, and then in 2011 I started to explore photography, which has become a new passion of mine. I have been showing my work regularly in the Burlington, Vermont area, and hope to keep growing as an artist

When I create a piece I use a variety of media and techniques. Though I mostly work with acrylics, and love using wood as my canvas, the rest is up to whatever the piece calls for. I've used old photos, maps, metal objects etc. I've also done some wood burning and carving. Hand carving my own rubber stamps is another technique that has become quite the obsession for me, and I love incorporating them into my paintings.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.
