As an artist living in Santa Cruz California, I am influenced  by living near the ocean with it's rhythm, rust, flotsam and ephemera. I express and interpret my curiosity about the world through a variety of mixed media from collage, drawing, painting, printmaking and assemblage.  My love of travel, natural history, ancient art and textiles combine to inform my explorations of pattern, texture and symbolism.

As I am always learning and experimenting with materials I tend to be less concerned with having a particular style but certain subjects do re-occur in my work and I hope that something here will resonate with you. Thank you for looking at my work!
