A set of 3 CANimals (Hear no, see no, and speak no evil) were chosen from an event designed to promote recycling of pet food cans by Purina. The set of crafty cats are on display at Purina's headquarters in St.Louis Missouri. Photos of the gallery exhibition in Soho, NY can be found in my photo albums.

Please give us a short bio.
Regardless of the medium I choose, Mother Nature is generally my theme, whether it be a wispy landscape, an animal, or a single leaf.

Educated as a graphic designer, but left it behind for more tactile mediums. I love the challenge of repurposing a functional item into beautiful art that still has usability.

One of the ways I give back to the community is by volunteering my time to seniors. I teach a free art class at Senior Life Services and am proud to say that I was chosen as this year's Volunteer of the Year.

I offer fee based art classes for any age student, single or group. In the near future my classes will be available from my home studio.
