I am a multimedia (collage) artist and also a clay artist. I Live in Michigan, married and have two children. My art has a natural or organic feel to it. Sometimes my paintings take on a state of dreaminess or even have a spiritual feel to them. I find inspiration when walking on the beach or in the woods, even my 7 chickens inspire me! I have a desire and even a need to create something that stimulates the mind and nourishes the soul. The whole process of doing art is very fulfilling. The journey in itself is a reward and always leaves me a just a little sad when I am finished with a piece - until I start the next one!
