Artwork

Water, sky, sand and the people that I love. I seek patterns in nature and focus on hope and joy. Growing up in industrial Northwest Indiana, I have always been drawn to art supplies found in a hardware store: enamel, Plexiglas, steel and wood. I crave bold color, the rigid boundaries of shape side by side and how these formal qualities create exciting possibilities.
