Q&A

Give us a brief description of you, your work, and your style.

 I have been creating art since I was a small child—it still shows on the undersides of my grandmother's furniture.
Over the past several years, my work has been exhibited across the country and sold to collectors around the world. My current interests include a love for exploring new places, the interconnectedness of things and people, specific nature, emotion in color, and our relationship with animals.
Since I became vegan in 2009, a large portion of my work has been made with the intention of inspiring compassion and respect for animals, by showcasing their natural beauty and individual personalities.  I hopes to inspire a loving and caring connection with animals instead of seeing them merely as “food” and “products”.
I’m currently living in the San Francisco Bay area with my hubby, Tommy, our always hungry cat, Miss Kitty, and our lovable dog, Wasabi.

What are your goals as artists?

Two goals:
to inspire compassion towards animals
and
to create cheerful abstract pieces that let the viewer have freedom to look at it without being told what to think or feel

From where do you draw inspiration?

Color, people, nature, animals, relationships, the interconnectedness of things and people, cities, photography, spirit, music.

Why do you chose to show your prints on Plywerk?

I searched high and low, far and wide to find a board that not only is high quality and good looking, but eco-friendly and made here in the States is a plus too.
