Passionately Creative

I use methods, materials and techniques from 17th century Italy. This includes hand built reinforced birch panel, linen, cotton, rabbit skin glue sizing and gessos that are made in studio. This diligence in preparation and how the paints and oils react to it create a living changing ground. The results are more genuinely alive in a way i find unobtainable in other mediums. The paintings age, as they should, and hopefully richen in the process.

I also use contemporary materials upon request in commissions such as acrylics on canvas, or oils on pva oil ground or acrylic gesso. Most of my income is from commissions both public and private, and I enjoy working on community projects where I can.

I live downtown Galveston, Texas with my two dogs in a live/work space studio created by Artspace, a national nonprofit art building development company. The Studio currently has regular open hours and participates (celebrates) in our Artwalks, which occur each six weeks.


Education and Learning

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean.

A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth.


Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar.

When she reached the first hills of the Italic Mountains, she had a last view back on the skyline of her hometown Bookmarksgrove, the headline of Alphabet Village and the subline of her own road, the Line Lane. Pityful a rethoric question ran over her cheek, then she continued her way.
