Thanks for visiting!
I’m a mixed media artist from Mechanicsburg Pennsylvania. When I was younger, it was typical that on Saturday mornings I would be in my father’s shop helping him work on projects whether I wanted to or not. I did not enjoy those times or appreciate them until I enrolled in a 3 dimensional course at Messiah College. It was then that I realized that I was most comfortable working with tools and equipment.
After that class, working with my hands has been a constant in my life. I would not be able to function in the current manner without the work. Art is the vehicle in which my work is carried out. Being able to work so closely with natural materials that are provided on this Earth, I am able to find comfort and solace in the dedication to the work. The processes and skills that my work calls for, and the need for stewardship of materials are what keep me accountable to this labor.
Feel free to click on the tabs and check out the work! Maybe you will see something you like.
