studio at Northrup King Building

I make my mark, using color as emotion, creating a space that invites contemplation.  Exploring the richness of color and playing with the vibrancy of life, I search beyond what the eye sees to find the inner celebration.  The lens focus tightens and blurs along the way, images overlapping -- the old patterns shift to the unforeseen.
