I have always observing, collecting, and marveling at the fine design details of natural elements. Naturalism, aesthetics and tactile design work are an integral part of what I have been doing for the past 30 years. After 20 years of experience in the interior design business and 10+ years in the fashion design / sales business for a national brand, I started applying my tactile creative experience to mixed media artwork. This new body of work allows me to create graphic modern art with natural items that I have always loved. I try to use handmade textiles whenever I can. Also, I strive to ethically source the elements and items used in my artwork. Many of these items I chose are unused or discarded so I love being able to give them new purpose and new life. As a lifelong naturalist and artist, I seek to bring attention to their natural beauty while combining and presenting them in an impactful, striking, fresh, and modern way.
