Bio: I am an American multi-disciplinary artist formally trained as an illustrator who has lived in England for over twenty years. Storytelling is at the heart of all my work often combining visual imagery with original poetry. I have worked in various aspects of the visual arts for over thirty years exhibiting worldwide. Over the years I have become a specialist in playfully telling stories with objects through my imaginative 3-D assemblage art bringing together history, memory and symbolism, likened to visual poetry. The participatory arts has also been an integral part of my creative practice. Clients have included: Manchester Museum, The Whitworth, Blackpool Grand Theatre, Lancashire County Council Museums Service, Blackpool Council and the Grundy Art Gallery.
