Chair Affair Artist

I love the idea of telling a story in my work, usually based on a quirky inspiration… as in this piece. Sketching on the plane as I returned home, I caught the eye of a young boy and his father who were intrigued by what I was drawing. I described the original and how I wanted to try the same idea. They were more than puzzled… but it felt like a great teaching moment! 

I love opportunities to teach - to bring out that creative side in everyone - to play with new ideas, new tastes, new images. My work experience includes art making, teaching and catering. I live in Gig Harbor and work for REACH ministries, a non-profit serving kids with life-threatening illness.
