- I guess you could say I was born an artist! My intrinsic artistic abilities appeared around the age of 1½ years old when I began scribbling colorful imagery on my bedroom walls, later carving designs and cryptic messages on my parent’s fine furniture. Over the years, I have continued my artistic endeavors working as a monotype printmaker, painter, mixed media artist, and jewelry maker.

Sometimes, I feel like I am on the hamster wheel of life.
With the promise of spring coming, the time changing, and warmers days,
I got a chance to get outside and dig in the dirt a little. I should be making art,
doing laundry, writing letters and sending cards to friends, paying more attention to housework, and taking time to breathe.
Somehow, just digging and being able to sit outside was heavenly.
I feel as if the wheel stopped, for a moment.

This is a digital photo collage. The photo, for me is symbolic of the wheel we all run on, around or under. The city is representative of the work we have to do, the establishment, the rules or the guidelines. The trees and foliage represent the lush of life, the things we enjoy. We all need to balance that ever-rolling ball we run on.
Right now, I am able to keep on top of the wheel, but I know at any time it could change.
