About

Primarily geared toward guilds and organizations, my trunk show focuses on working with  creative energy itself rather than any one art form.  Encouraging personal, creative expression and media experimentation is at the heart of this show. The show itself includes textile arts, sculpture, traditional and mixed media paintings.
