I am an artist from Richmond, VA. I currently head up the Embellishment Department for World Art Group. I am lucky enough to have a job that lets me explore different media, techniques and finishes. It has taught me that art is truly in the eye of the beholder, and that you shouldn't over think it. Just do the work that you love. Don't worry if no one gets it- now. My work has been published and licensed and can be found all over the world, thanks to World Art Group. I am constantly creating or photographing almost to the point of compulsion. I have been married over 20 years to the filmmaker Jim Stramel and have worked on many of his films and music videos. I love Abstract Expressionism, Photographic Expressionism, Folk Art, Outsider Art, Irony and pretty much anything weird.
