Striving to be creative daily, I am a mixed media visual artist and abstract photographer intrigued by pixel manipulation and glitch formation. I'm a fan of collage, calligraphy, and all things typographic. I also practice creating fibre art textures for 3D applications and wall hangings. Academically, I've been fortunate to have taught in an arts high school auditioning, writing curriculum and delivering lessons for over twenty years. My thoughts are that artists shouldn't be pigeon holed. As a teacher with over 20 experienced with high school, college and private lessons, I tell my students being an artist is all about observation and an inner drive that should embrace all creative pursuits, sometimes employing a different medium, or a mix of them to satisfy a challenge or personal interpretation.
