When making art I draw, paint, print, and tattoo with seasonal forays into fiber crafts like knitting, quilting and embroidery. I love making art and images as food for the soul and psyche, as ritual markers, and as articulations of insights uncovered. I find great satisfaction in making items of practical use and am inspired by folk art & craft traditions. Knowing that an object will serve a purpose in addition to being well crafted and beautiful sets my heart at ease. Whenever possible, I try to reuse and repurpose materials when making. Waste sucks. Plus, foraging for supplies at the thrift store is my favorite!
