I love creating art, because it takes me into that eternal space in which the stresses of time drop away. Ah, to dwell always in that space!
I have worked in pastels, ink, mixed media, textile arts, oils, acrylics and pixels. I have been a photographer for most of my life.
In addition to being an artist, I'm also a designer, writer, and composer. I’ve published journalism, fiction & poetry. My plays and musicals have been produced by professional, academic and community theater companies. You will find my art and designs in my gallery and shops.
