New Day, New Synapse

I’m currently bouncing between several pieces, trying to create a variety of depictions to capture the magical and most mysterious act of ‘synapse’.

Coloring for a Cause

I am really excited about the invitation I received to partner with Color ATL, a new creative initiative bringing together 40 Atlanta-based artists in the effort to produce a most unique adult coloring book.

Putting My Art into Words

I have been most humbled by the interest not only in my artwork, but the personal journey that accompanies. Being a present parent and a practicing artist seems to be a topic with which many can relate.

Coming ‘Home’

No matter what country I find myself in, if I walk into an art studio, it immediately feels like home.

Permission to Ruminate

I have been ruminating on ideas for a potential artwork series for nearly two years. I don’t think I have ever had such a long incubation time for a concept
