Fish Out of Water (detail)

It all started with a 1949 Singer sewing machine given to me as a gift in 1995.  As I began to experiment with it and became more involved I learned that I could use all of the talents which I've gained from previous dabblings in other forms of art and focused them into one cohesive medium. My ability has grown along with my passion.

My art has been shown three times at the Andy Warhol Museum where I received three awards, one being the Carnegie Museum of Art Purchase Award. I've also had work shown in France, Germany, Australia, and New York City
