We take pride in being part of the art community, encouraging and supporting local artists. Take a closer look.
I had a lot of fun painting the characters I love from my favorite movies, trying to capture the intensity of their struggles and triumphs in the depth of their roles. Our modern culture’s fascination with understanding their own humanity, through the cinematic experience, can be revealing, amusing and confronting, where we see how weird and wonderful we really are, giving us a good laugh along the way.

Repurposed tin objects, from old toys to tea tins and lunchboxes with their whimsy and patina, are my source materials. Turning them into art, instead of landfill waste, is my conscious creative action in response to environmental destruction, and our hubris surrounding it.
I am attracted to texture, color and pattern -
especially in unexpected combinations.
I’m fascinated by the effect of time on metal
and wood surfaces. I love working with tools.
I have a passion for rusty junk and I have
a staggering collection of old tins.
I have a degree in Visual Communications
and for the past 15 years or so, I have worked
professionally in print media, and as a
typography and graphic design instructor.
