I am originally from Southern California, a small town in the foothills of the grand San Bernardino mountains, and currently reside in the foothills of El Dorado County in Northern California. I enjoy many things in life including: Woodworking, Music, Photography, Jewelry Making, Vintage Clocks, Auto Racing, Motorcycles, Skateboarding, Cycling, Hiking, enjoying the splendor of the mountains or spending time at the beach.

As an artist I have a passion and desire to create. I believe we are at our best when creating art…. be it a sketch, a painting, a photograph, a collage, a piece of music, a work of literature… something that inspires. What inspires me about my art is the joy of making something from random pieces into a finished artwork… without directions or a how-to manual… no rule book… just sheer freedom to create. Taking a fragment of leather and shaping it to fit, to work with it’s surrounding…. a piece of scrap that would have been discarded.

My art is abstract collage using different colors and textures of leather creating a framed wall art, and I like using keepsake or shadowbox frames for the depth they have. I am intrigued by different colors, shapes and textures and how they play in contrast and yet compliment each other…. To build layers using a variety of colors that grab the attention. Sometimes I will incorporate polymer clay pieces that I have made, Swarovski crystals, or whatever else my imagination at the time decides to place in the work.

I have displayed at: The MACC, Sacramento Fine Art Center, KVIE Art Auction, Bank of America Gallery at the Harris Center, Blue Line Arts Gallery, Placerville Government Center, The Gallery at 48 Natoma, 2nd Saturday Art Hop in Folsom, Lincoln City Hall Rotunda Gallery, Sierra Vista Winery, El Dorado County Fair, For The Love of Art Gallery
