I strive to capture what moves me on an emotional and aesthetical level. In pursuit of that, I visualize the image I [...]

Working out of my studios in Lake Geneva, WI, and Scottsdale, AZ, I create art jewelry with an emphasis on mixed media embellishments and hand-woven chain.

The Work
 Inspired by graffiti this work is an effort to bring street art‘s edge, spontaneity, humor, wit, and excitement into your environment. Starting with a textured, “stained wall” look the work is heavily layered. Its visual messages are built up incorporating stencils, airbrush (to simulate spray paint) wet blending and gravity dripping. As graffiti is defined by its limited life span, resin is used to “freeze” time rescuing the [...]

My architectural imagery is organic, sometimes celestial and, grounded in antiquity. Patterns, textures, light, shadows and omissions collaborate to create a dichotomy; both real and illusionary. What is excluded is as important as what is included. Contextual clues are often subtle or absent (Spanish Synagogue). The imagery, speaks to our yearning to visualize the stories bequeathed to us by our grandmothers. The reverie of the images trumpet ways of life [...]

As a painter and photographer, I often combine both media into one image. The camera never records the picture the way I see it in my minds eye, so I rework the image to bring out what I see. I might repaint the background, adjust the composition, and carefully draw your eye to what makes the image special. I enjoy painting my frames to continue the picture and provide an [...]
