Painter. Teacher. Creative Spirit.
"The paintings came this afternoon and I love "More". What this piece will teach me over and over again each time I look into it is "Remember that More is really less." I love this piece even now."
JESSICA ARMSTRONG, GLENWOOD SPRINGS, COLORADO
"Life involves elemental processes and progressions of state, and my work expresses a culmination of thoughts and inner conversations about the iterative nature of changing reality. Nothing can - or does remain the same: all things are evolving into something else."
