I am a 'hands-on', DIY type that loves to bring people into the fold of my passions. More specifically, I love my community and its ever changing landscape. Can I make it a better place by setting a good example? After all, my mom always said, "leave a place better than you found it…"

My goal is to create a lifestyle of live, work, play, stay and be more sustainable in all my endeavors. Don't get me wrong, I love to travel, but if I can reduce part of my carbon footprint, the world will be a better place for future generations. Ideally, I would love to help build a cultural art program in an established community. Long story, short, marketing talented artists to a region, while still enjoying creating my own artwork in my free time.

Currently, I earn my living as an artist who partners with the community for common good. My artwork begins with my own digital photography of historic landmarks and cultural neighborhoods. Recently, I have started painting abstracts. All images get transferred onto a variety of surfaces to make 2D and 3D home fashions and fashion accessories. I especially love transferring images to fabric to create interesting designs.
