I use many types of mediums and techniques because each one has their own language and way of expressing ideas. I am a lifetime resident of Indiana and have always felt the need to create. The creation of art is a process I use to understand the world I live in and what it means to be alive. I use my artwork to discuss social and environmental issues, story-telling, history, relationships and self. My art teaches me to accept and embrace the imperfections of myself. I find it satisfying to see how creating art makes people glow, come alive, and feel a sense of accomplishment.
