Hello! If you've joined me here from other social media, big thanks to you! If you've stumbled onto my page by accident or divine providence, YAY, welcome!

Allow me to introduce myself. I'm a multimedia artist whose passion spans several disciplines. I've been a painter, sculptor, sketch artist all my life, and have simply added more as my passion expanded. My first paid work was portraiture and other drawing while I was still in high school. From there, over more than twenty years of creative discovery have provided some amazing opportunities. I've been blessed to have done freelance work for private and commercial clients around the world, have had my work published nationally and internationally, and have appeared on the DIY Network.

My specialty, the thing I'm known for, is paper mache. I accidentally "fell" into paper mache as an experimental medium many years ago, and because of its versatility and all of the wonderful things it has enabled me to create, I never escaped it (learn more about that here). Over the past 20 or so years I've joined a movement of artists who have sought to elevate this medium to a modern audience from throwaway craft to useful, desirable, sustainable art form. My goal is to help restore the image paper mache once had: viable art, decor, and building medium. 

I am equally obsessed, however, with painting, drawing, and other means of creation, so I am always busy, never bored. The pinnacle of all of that is when I am able to combine those materials to create mixed media projects!

A typical studio day can involve any or all of these media, plus admin, since I also handle all photography, photo editing, and copy writing for my work. It's insanity, but I LOVE it. I'm here to share my passion with you!
