I’m a mixed media artist, and my work includes paper pulp sculptures and hand stitched embroideries. Many of my pieces contain mythological themes, and I’m particularly interested in the symbolism of hybrid creatures.

I often say that I work forthe angels because I consistently feel like my art is being shown to me from another realm before I create it.

I’m interested in the tension between the physical and metaphysical, between the particle and the wave. A quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson describes an aspect of this idea: Every man is a divinity in disguise, a god playing the fool. Beyond these themes I find meaning in the process of creation itself.
