About Me

       Care about people’s approval and you will be their prisoner. Do your work, then step back. The only path to serenity….Lao-tzu, Tao te ching

Continued inspiration for this work comes from the creative genius of the Kirklands, Reubens, Steins, Farbers, and Arbeits of the artistic world. Through their teachings, I have worked to create an individual perspective which now permeates my work. I have had the opportunity to exhibit this work locally, regionally, nationally, and abroad. It is with great personal satisfaction that I step back and allow this work to be seen.
