Visual Art has always been a source of expression and communication for me and I especially enjoy working in graphite, colored pencil and pastel. My inspiration comes from nature and people and the thread of connection to both. My goal is to inspire those who look and my work and to see deeper than the surface.

When searching for inspiration, I look for unique views and shapes in my subject matter. My work often takes on a graphical quality and I like to express either intense color or grayscales.

I’ve made a career in web and graphic design as the Owner and Creative Director of Rosepapa Creative, and traditional art is an escape from the busy digital world.
