Colorado

Colorado Collection

I had the exciting opportunity to take a long road trip in 2012. I've always wanted to see Colorado and finally had the chance to drive from my home to this lovely state. It was long, but totally worth the many adventures along the way. I found the landscape so inspiring, like many artist before me…

Tilling

Tilling Collection

I find myself creating work that captures my life in the countryside of Lancaster and Lebanon counties in Pennsylvania. I am surrounded by the rolling cornfields and vast farms that fill this agricultural area. The more I stare at them from my car window the more they have become an inspiration for my work…

Dwell

Dwell Collection

Stop and listen. Be still and dwell. Look and see past the fields of green hedged by trees. There is more than a strong breeze of the ocean that sways the tall grass. Beauty is around my easel as I take a breath and begin placing paper to canvas. The work is a reflection of my reality no matter where…

Little Houses

Little Houses Collection

I always enjoyed little things. I find miniatures from toys to animals make me smile. I like the quaint things in life that you can wrap your hands around. This idea of little attracts me when it comes to art as well. I like the idea of taking a small surface and filling it with lots of character, texture and…

A Stately Garden

A Stately Garden Collection

I like to take on challenges. I was given the idea of creating a collage for every official state flower. I've worked on a flower-based series before and enjoyed the experience. Flowers are something most everyone enjoys and they look great in any room. I like taking an object we all recognize from our gardens…

Lost and Found

Lost and Found Collection

I am mesmerized by the many different kinds of creative mediums—from music and the visual arts to poetry. These genres all have a common place of meeting in the realm of beauty and self-discovery. Music is an important source of inspiration in my artistic process. One particular singer/songwriter, Andrew Peterson…

The Waters

The Waters Collection

Water has been a fascination for artists throughout the centuries. I am not the only one that has stood by its edge and marveled at water's untamable life. It never rests as it moves in small quivers or sweeping waves. The color that reflects from its surface captivates me as I try to discover the many…

Snow

Snow Collection

White is as vibrant as the rainbow and just as hard to capture. The icy glass reflects the cool earth around it in tones of blue and purple. It is beautiful, quiet and lonely all in one. I see the frozen sheets that lie next to the muted hues of brown and find inspiration for my canvas. The challenge…

As Time Passes

As Time Passes Collection

I enjoy creating a series of images. They become visual families to me as they share a common idea. This series is based on the twelve months in a year. Specially, it looks at the designated flower for each month. I love the beauty found in so many flowers that it was hard to think of just bringing one…

Miniature Worlds

Miniature Worlds Collection

They are like tiny windows from my eyes to the world. The marriage of my observation and imagination comes to life on these small surfaces. I desire to share the beauty of this created earth with the audience of humanity. A wash of color and a scrap of texture are my tools as I construct my own sense…

The Stag and the Dove

The Stag and the Dove Collection

This collections is inspired by Song of Solomon. In chapter two, verses 8-12 my beloved is a stag leaping over the mountains to where his love rests. The hills are vast, but he is mightier than the earth. The rain has gone, the skies are bright and declare a new beginning. My stag, my Christ, is coming to…

Collage Portraits

Collage Portrait Collection

The history of portraiture is rich and extensive. Kings and nobles have commissioned the artist for hundreds of years to capture both their essence and their face on linen. My work is to combine portraits and the medium of collage, assembling an image of not only the subject's face, but their essence…

Bloom

Bloom Collection

Bloom—to flourish; a glow. The word in which my inspiration buds. It begins on the surface with a haze of gray and moves towards warm, illuminating beauty. It is an action, not a request that I demand of my hands and imagery. The pieced paper forest in which all of my blooms mature is often dark…

Commissions

Commissions Collection

Art can bring joy to a person's life through one simple image. We seek to surround ourselves with beauty. And fine art—from paintings to sculptures—can help make that a reality. I have had the privilege to be a vehicle for said joy to others. As an artist, I want to use my gift as a means to…
