"In my 25+ years as a professional graphic designer and entrepreneur, my focus was always business oriented. As I transitioned from work-life to semi-retirement, I had more time to reflect upon and explore the influences that ultimately made me the artist I am today.
Over the last decade, I became aware of 4 cornerstone elements woven throughout my work...the spiritual profundity of the natural world, a deeply held belief in “no coincidences”/synchonicities, the symbiotic beauty of Native cultures/traditions, and the incorporation of dream imagery/”Dream-spirations.” Each piece, through theme, design element or inclusion of personal totems, belies the importance of these 4 cornerstones in my continuing artistic journey.
So now, as life has turned yet another page and I begin another new life chapter, I pledge anew to build and expound upon these artistic cornerstones. I hope you will enjoy the artwork as much as I enjoy making them! Thank you for visiting...and remember...always follow your creative butterfly!"
