When trees gather for a family picture.
Use your imagination. What do you see right below the surface? Or, even deeper?
The bees get to work early.
When you just don’t know what to think.

I started with very technical black and white pen/ink drawings. You can see the remnants of my pen and ink days in the “Family Reunion” piece. When I found oil pastels, I felt like I finally found an outlet for more emotionally driven art. My process is messy like me, a work in progress. I love smearing and smudging the pastels. I am very tactile and love texture, so oil pastels are a perfect medium for me that I only discovered in the last few years.
