Good vibes only.
My adventure began in the late sixties in Carthage Mo. I grew up in a white house, on a quiet street, with a Funeral Director Father, a stay at home Mother, a miniature dachshund named Hugo and 2 large trees in the front yard.
I discovered a love for the arts at a very early age and spent many hours during my youth at the drawing board...armed with pencils, pens, markers, paper and imagination.
A deep passion for the act of creativity and story-telling was fostered in me during those years and it was from those innocent beginnings that my work has progressed into a life long career calling of creativity and artistic exploration.
I create in many mediums and feel my work is a unique combination of documented beauty, human connection and abundant joy.
I am always creating and looking for new and inventive ways to express myself through my work. It is my hope that both my art and creative journey can be of service to you.
My fine art collage mashups draw inspiration from the digital chaos that is a byproduct of our data overloaded, always connected world. I combine, much like a Google search result, photo images, art textures, written words and rich graphic elements together to form an immersive, visually complex and compelling piece of art that blurs the line between traditional and digital media. Prints are available to purchase in my store.
My photography documents the natural beauty of landscapes and environments through the use of texture, light, color and composition. My current focus is contrasting the rural beauty of the vast Midwestern farmland with the urban core of my home in Kansas City but I can also be found taking photos wherever my creative muse takes me. Prints are available to purchase in my store.

For my clients I have created custom collage works of art that celebrate important family events like birthday milestones, high school graduations and the birth of a child.
Each custom piece is done with photos, provided by you, that I then arrange into a special, one of a kind, collage design that visually tells the story of your important event.
I also design unique Christmas cards that visually show highlights, and special moments, from the previous year. These personalized, one of a kind, cards make sending warm Yuletide greetings to your friends and family extra special.
Pricing and print options are available so use the Contact page to get in touch and let me know what special event, or holiday, that I can commemorate with a special piece of art done just for you.

Book - 71/69/49

A PixieGraph is a project I collaborated on several years ago with author Mouse of Zen and it was a true labor of love for the Disney Parks fan community.
Put simply a PixieGraph is what happens when you take a Disney parks photograph and combine it with one of my custom designs and a Disney parks inspired haiku by the talented Mouse of Zen.
The concept worked well with both my personal Disney parks photography as well as vacation photos sent to me by fans who wanted a PixieGraph of their very own made from their Disney vacation photos.
