Over the past twenty-plus years I have been creating artwork that, in the simplest terms, tell people’s stories. These visual translations cross multiple boundaries, and speak of deeply personal commitments and commemorations. They stretch beyond commissioned works of art into collaborations that reveal people’s hopes, dreams, and passions in and for life.

When I am asked to do a commission, I work very closely with my client through the entire process. First, we begin with a conversation to explore their ideas for the piece. I ask for descriptive words, colors, dates, imagery that might be significant, places / maps, etc. Then I spend time creating a preliminary sketch with colored pencil and pen that my client can comment on. The next step is to create a layout of the piece with actual imagery, text and visual elements, all the while communicating with my client and sending photos of the progression of their piece. Again, they are welcome to comment on changes they might like to see, or present new ideas that have been sparked in this time. Finally, I go ahead and complete the work. It is always a fulfilling and unique experience. For most artists, this may seem an unorthodox approach, but my work has always been about connections.  It may be that you have a vision for a project at work, or as a gift for someone.  We can make that happen.

Sometimes commissions go beyond a singular work and become collaborations with groups of people: a classroom of kids or a faith community or an entire company.  I create customized residencies with schools, businesses and organizations of any size.

I also work with businesses collaborating on team building and professional/staff development projects that open up new possibilities for teams, teachers and schools everywhere.

If you would like to set up a time to meet about an idea you have for a commission or a collaboration, please send me a note.  I look forward to listening to your story and creating something together!
