I am a self taught artist who has evolved technically and conceptually through workshops, online digital courses and educational videos. I also have an extensive library of books on mixed media, alternative and traditional photography. My personal interests, feelings, external influences and life experiences can be observed in my work My style is eclectic and most recent endeavors include creating designs with a similar theme or concept. I have personally observed how art can change public opinion, create new ideas or re-construct a person’s life based on their involvement in the art world. I am often following multiple paths simultaneously with a vision to create more art that combines traditional with non-traditional elements. Although I may have some set patterns, I do not have a set formula for the majority of my designs but utilize a lot.
Of experimentation and inspiration from other artists to start a project. Sometimes ideas seem to occur without rhyme or reason. My workflow may or may not include a pre-conceived vision. Art for me has been a meandering path of unpredictable and surprising outcomes that seem never ending.
