Cleveland Based Artist
Exploring Photography, Watercolor,
Encaustic Painting, and Anthotype Prints

As a professional photographer, I began branching out into other mediums in 2010. I would like to share with you my recent explorations in using multiple mediums including anthotype, watercolor, encaustic, and pencil drawings.

My inspirations come from my lifelong love of horses, creating art with my father, and the desire to be in a state of creative flow. I invite you to enjoy my work and please feel free to contact me for design installations and purchase options.


The catalyst all of my other artistic experimentation.


Meditation is found in the dreamy pools of watercolor paint. They represent absolute freedom to me. Free flowing, free brush strokes, loosening up, letting go.

Encaustic Paintings

Encaustic painting, also known as hot wax painting, involves using heated beeswax to which colored pigments are added.


An anthotype is an image created using photosensitive material from plants. This process was originally invented by Sir John Herschel in 1842. An emulsion is made from crushed flower petals or any other light-sensitive plant, fruit or vegetable.
