Hello! I am an award winning Michigan artist with a background in fine art and interior design. I teach art to creators of all ages and abilities, and am especially passionate about working with artists with disabilities and mental health struggles. My art celebrates the natural world around us and all those who inhabit it. Living things truly are works of art in and of themselves, but often our interior landscapes are even more interesting. I believe art should show us something we cannot see in real life, and I enjoy visually exposing the unique mental environment of the subjects in my work. In each piece, I aim to begin a story that the viewer gets to finish.
I believe in the healing power of creativity, and I am blessed to see every day how creation sparks joy in both the creator and those around them. Everyone is an artist. Each person on earth has the ability to do something creative that can touch another person, and it is never too late to begin.
