MIXED MEDIA 

I create mixed media pieces that speak to the important aspects of our lives. Family, friends, nature, love, home, and a sense of self figure prominently in these works. I focus on a specific person or subject and all of my design choices, such as colour, text, ephemera and pattern reflect the subject matter. 

  Rules For A Happy Childhood    8” x 10”    Mixed Media on Wood Panel    $70.00   The joy of childhood was on my mind as I worked on this piece. The wonder in a child’s eye as she explores new places and investigates all the nooks and crannies there are to find led me to use the words Wander, Explore, and Question. As adults we need to look at the world through the eyes of a child and enjoy what nature has to offer.
