Art is something I do every day. I write, I draw, I paint, and I teach. The very act of creating a piece of artwork is what I find most fascinating, the process of starting with nothing and ending with something beautiful and engaging. I love color and all of the endless combinations that come from my palette. I love texture that comes from interesting surface treatments. My mediums of choice include calligraphy, acrylic, drawing, watercolor, collage and woodcarving. Every day I go to my studio and make new discoveries. Art, for me is not an option, it is a way of life.
