I am an artist — I am not a business. My work is handmade, in the simplest sense of the word. From the early process of imagining stories by drawing and writing ideas in sketchbooks, even on napkins if inspiration strikes, I love to create using multimedia which allows the material to be shared instantly and then constantly evolve... like when you walk a familiar trail, but the light is different, a flood has washed away part, or in the spring cottonwood fluff falls like snow. It's always changing over time.
