Thoughts from the artist:
Seeking a slow and painful death to the term "starving artist" from a living, breathing artist. I understand the role art galleries, exhibits, and shows play within their communities. Always purchase directly from the artist when you can. I accept paypal, US currency, and cashier's checks. If you'd like to donate my artwork to your favorite charity, please contact me for purchase. This website does not show the entire collection of my work. Thank you to my collectors, I appreciate your support. I am not a professional website designer, and don't care much for social media, apologies to those who expect more from me. My dedication is to my art. Are you a first-time visitor to my website? Three cheers to you, it's somewhat miraculous that you found me.

Thank you for visiting.

"The truth is that women have never been treated equally in the art world, and today they remain dramatically underrepresented and undervalued in museums, galleries, and auction houses."
