WELCOME TO MY STUDIO
I am a self taught artist, sewer, and doll maker. I've been creating art since I was a kid in Cincinnati, Ohio. In 2008, I moved to Germany. Here I am living out my dream as an artist. My paintings are visual narratives. I am inspired by nature and my ancestors. Through an intuitive form of storytelling, I seek to explore the connection between humans, the world we live in and the universe that surrounds us.
WHAT IS INTUITIVE STORYTELLING?
Intuitive storytelling is a painting technique that I use to create all of my works of art on canvas and paper. Using various materials such as acrylic paint, oil and chalk pastels, collage and ink, I create what I call rhythmic chaos. Within this chaos, figures and elements emerge from the background. I then abstract these elements which unveil beautiful narratives. I never know what is going to show up on my canvas. The process is inspiring and magical!
I have had the pleasure of teaching this technique in online courses hosted by:
Tamera Laporte of Willowing Arts ( Whimsy Wonderland 2019 and Life Book 2018)
Kara Bullock of Kara Bullock Art School ( Let's Face It 2017)
Tiare Smith Of Tiare Smith Designs (One Badass Art Journal 2016)
Marieke Blokland of Bloknote.nl ( Art Journal Summer School 2016)

FOLK DOLL SCULPTURES
My paper clay sculptures are handmade using mostly recycled materials. The figures have a folk art style that is organic and unique.
