About Our Art
There’s something deeply personal about pausing at the ordinary and seeing what’s especially beautiful or meaningful or otherwise fascinating. I love finding those places and moments, everyday surroundings which most people take for granted. I use my camera and seek out optimum perspectives. Then, with colored pencils, I work to capture the way the light plays with the angles and surfaces, capture these snapshots in time. What’s important to me is bringing you a sense of simple beauty, allowing you to see what I do … seeing the ordinary as extraordinary.
I am a juried member of the Greater St. Louis Artists Association and the Best of Missouri Hands (Missouri Artisans Association). I am a member of the Colored Pencil Society of America and the Pencil Art Society.
