My friend Wiz once told me that who I am could be summed up by a quote by the French novelist Emile Zola: “If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you: I am here to live out loud.”

I am an artist, writer, illustrator and Emmy award-winning set decorator based in the heart of Texas but I have several residences on the world wide web. Find them here. 

As much satisfaction as I get out of the act of creating, my joy is multiplied when I know others have gotten pleasure out of it as well. Please say hello if you’re one of them.
