Completed my first public art project & although it took many, many hours, it was such a joyful experience! Meet my 5.5ft giant cottontail above, “COTTONSAIL!” He is at ArtTrek in Newbury Park at the moment and available for sale. I am continually inspired & intrigued by simple things such as all things coastal, unique tree bark, the way chickens move & light bouncing around by the second, changing the color of everything. Nature fascinates me & I’ve always been curious.

I’m grateful for new ideas daily that I express via art & for my art pals. I love music, the beach, kayaking, hiking, reading the Bible & riding bikes with my family. Nature is definitely God’s canvas!
