I have created visual art all my life as a reflection of my surroundings, ongoing circumstances, memories, emotions and imagination. Most of my work includes human figures which I enjoy drawing. Encircling movements occur often, a reflection of natural currents, the flow of ideas, communication, and time.
I am interested in combining urban references and silhouettes to blend organic and man-made shapes. Currently I am exploring mixed media techniques in painting and printmaking and also create digital images with Procreate and Photoshop.

Originally from Montréal, Canada, I discovered Austin in the 1970s and majored in printmaking at UT Austin. Afterward I spent time living in France and Albuquerque, NM, working as an illustrator. I returned to Austin and worked at Texas School for the Blind as an art instructor for children with disabilities and later as a graphic designer for their publications.
Currently living in Austin, Texas.
