I find much inspiration and solace in nature – I love the smell of sun and pine needles. There’s something so simple and honest about exploring Mother Nature that connects me with my authentic self. I gather artifacts from personal journeys, thrift stores, estate sales and the outdoors. Each piece that I work with has a story to tell. The textures and images from vintage pieces are infinitely more interesting than anything you can buy new. The authenticity of the raw, natural state of the outdoors combined with the vintage bits brings my art to life and inspires me to create genuinely honest works to be explored. Above all I desire kinship with my authentic self and seek to find her whenever I can. I hope you join me sometime on a journey of self-discovery into the universal truths that unite us all.
