Imagine a world where all forms of prejudice and segregation are rejected and our fundamental human needs for safety, freedom, prosperity, and peace are protected in a blanket of cooperative creativity.

Imagine when humanity's oneness is expressed through our infinite diversity of talents, thoughts, and life experiences.

My art represents a desire to express my world view with all of its messiness, challenges, beauty and grace. I challenge myself to choose media and materials that will best express the narratives and emotions that I want to evoke. In terms of my favorite supplies or materials to create my art, anything and everything is a potential source.

When I am not creating new art, I am exploring the world, teaching mixed media art workshops, and seeking a life of authenticity and peace.
