I am an artist — I am not a business. My work is handmade, in the simplest sense of the word. From the early stages of the storytelling process drawing and writing ideas in sketchbooks, even on napkins if need be, I love to create with multimedia which allows the material to be shared instantly and then constantly evolve. It changes through time like when you walk a familiar trail's ecosystem, but the light is different, a flood has washed away part, or in the spring cottonwood fluff falls like snow... and it's a joy to see how the themes of the stories intertwine, reinforcing each other.
