2D Mixed Media
Art is the best expression of the soul for me. My family and I have been afforded many unforgettable journeys through military service. Experiencing life and letting it flow through to me in my artwork, whether painting, collage, or jewelry, is my expression. The glorious world of nature fills my heart and mind with endless opportunities and inspiration. My palette lives in my experiences and influences. Mixed media collage comes to life with acrylic paints, gouache, repurposed magazines, paper, and acrylic adhesive medium. For 16 years, I have designed and created unique and comfortable jewelry for everyday wear with intricate knotting of nylon, waxed cotton, and repurposed leather, showcasing gemstones, vintage medals, fossils, and freshwater pearls. Art remains my grounding energy. It has always been about the earth. My designs are inspired by nature, cultures, music, and so much more. Loving the journey!
