Artist Statement & Bio


"I begin with an idea and then it becomes something else."
  ~ Pablo Picasso

Through the wonderful world of happenstance, I have been fortunate enough to step into the creative world of being an artist. For this I am forever grateful.

My mind, and what it creates, is much like a kaleidoscope as minute by minute it is ever changing . My goal is not to let it make me dizzy!
