Meet The Artist

The healing power of art was evident to me long before the concept was popularized.  My self-directed art education and practice started at the age of six when the need to find safe refuge from the domestic violence that frequently occurred in our home. I would retreat with paper, pencil, and crayons to find safe haven to make art.

Agrarian landscapes and culture have always been a central point of subject for the visual art that I create.  I attempt to convey what I see into a visually joyful and compelling image in its own right.   The landscape is simplified, and haphazard paint events lend an improvisational element to the work.  For me, my work becomes a joyous journey of discovery as the image develops in a spontaneous kind of way.

My body of work continues to evolve, as does the Funk House Art Garden.  Both thrive best when nurtured daily.
