My work is focused on exploration—both of the external world and internally—and is a synthesis of science, "magic," personal narrative, and time and place. Strongly connected to nature and influenced by my former career as an art director and designer in educational publishing, the process of making art for me is an act of discovery, of transmutation, of devotion.
In 1993 I was a co-founder of Good/Bad Art Collective in Denton, TX and remained active until 1998. At that time I was three years into my publishing career and ultimately choose to pursue the latter. I loved making books and felt great about the integrity of helping educate people, but as happens in life, both the industry and I changed. By 2016, my professional and personal growth options had hit a wall, and I returned to making art, with my first gallery show in 2017 for the first time since the 1990s. In the time since, art making has become a compulsion, and I've weaned myself out of the publishing career. I now balance my time between my art practice and my business Open Window Meditations, which offers intuitive readings, Visual Meditations, and Reiki sessions and classes.
