Updates, News & Events


I am a multi-disciplinary visual artist with an education and background in fine art and design. My experience includes painting using both physical and digital media, as well as creating virtual materials for film, television and product design.

Painting is my personal escape and expression. Working between physical and digital mediums offers continuous creative challenge; each method feeding and informing the other in my work. 

My current paintings are figurative expressions in acrylic on canvas or birch panels. I am inspired by glimpses of the sublime within ordinary moments; my paintings invoke inner experiences where emotion and memory entwine.

My paintings are held in private collections in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and Norway.

Thank you for your interest in my work.

science tarot

A portfolio of my paintings for the Suit of Wands in the Science Tarot Project, and images from our launch party at the California Academy of Sciences.

One through ten card designs were painted using Photoshop, and the face cards were painted using acrylic mixed media on 24x36 inch canvases. For the launch party display I bound the four paintings together at the corners, and displayed on a raised central pedestal. There were also two stations with glowing light cube stands on which rested view master viewers containing the card art .
