I am a self taught mixed media artist and painter of soulful characters. I try to find a story of simplicity and harmony in each piece of art I make. I am influenced by shape, color and patterns, both created by hand and found in nature. When I create, I let my muse take me where it wants to go. I play and enjoy the process, while looking for my imaginary characters to make an appearance.
Teaching is an integral part of my artist's life, sharing techniques and learning from my students. The core of my teaching is to share the value of playful curiosity, learning to see with your heart and trusting the process. I wrote my book Imaginary Characters: Mixed Media Painting Techniques for Figures and Faces with that philosophy in mind.
