Prior to my life as an artist, I was a social worker. The processing of emotions that is essential to social work led me to art. Art, in my view, is emotions coming into the world in another form for oneself and others. My medium of choice has changed over time but a consistent theme in all my work is emotional expression, energy and the exploration of mood through color. My creativity also has an outlet in my graphic design career. While my graphic design work offers me the opportunity to take other people’s ideas and needs and interpret them into a usable art-form, my personal art allows me to engage my own ideas about the world.
