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.
