I am a Colorado native with a background in Design, & Technical Theatre and a Master’s of Landscape Architecture. My multi-media work creates experiential spaces and a sense of place.
“I enjoy creating multi-media paintings of figural subjects and abstracted landscapes. Currently I’m working with colorful and textural man-made and machine-made paper from Thailand, India and Japan. This art medium limits my palette and challenges my skills to create depth, texture, light and shadow.” It makes a remarkable painterly quality of the image until you are up close and realize its all paper.
I have worked in every possible medium and created 2 -d and 3 -d art work as well as furniture. I have done lighting, set design and had eleven years as a properties artisan with another decade as a community development planner and landscape architect. I especially love space planning and and extremely good at spatial environments. I am working in paper as a challenge to limit my palette but I also love the problem solving and jigsaw puzzle.
