I began creating visual art while getting an M.A. in creativity as a personally and socially transformative process. Having played improvisational piano for many years prior, my visual images also emerged spontaneously, from the inspiration of the present moment. I started with acrylics, later developing a unique look with Prismacolor markers featuring colored sections bordered in gold. Although I often don't create intentionally recognizable images, people are always seeing things in my designs, which I find both fascinating and fun.
