I am a self taught, fine artist based in Salt Lake City. You can find my work in juried fine arts festivals in Utah, Colorado and New Mexico as well as galleries in my home state.
All of my work is done in pen and ink - exclusively using the stipple technique... this means that I draw one little dot at a time. It's a painstakingly slow process, but the result is a highly detailed piece with an intriguing texture. Occasionally I will infuse a piece with a touch of color, usually with colored pencil.
My subject matter tends to be whimsical, often playful. I've often been asked where my inspiration for my art comes from. I know that artists typically have some deep, soul rending answer for this. Mine is simple: I love what I do. My inspiration is my passion for creating something beautiful and the startling rush of emotion I feel every time I step back to look at a finished piece. It never fails to surprise me.
Where to find me in 2021!
Kimball Park City Arts Festival,
Park City, UT
Pearl Street Arts Fest
With all that is happening with the pandemic, most festivals have been postponed or changed to a virtual setting. A quiet 2020 will give me a chance to add to my inventory and create some new pieces! Be sure to come see me next year!
