Visual Artist / Mixed Media
Artisan / Furniture
Writer / Poetry

The creative imperative is the urgent call to action, it is in the doing and being that our lives are expressed. While the product of our endeavors is certainly important, it is in the process of becoming or evolving that we discover who we are and what we portend. As an artist, poet, and puppeteer, I delight in seeing the imagined come to life.
