I am a local art & artist teacher in Boulder, Co. My artwork is highly influenced by my students and the light heartedness of childhood! My work is whimsical, colorful, humorous, funky, playful, wild, dreamy, off-the-wall creative expressions of the many different feelings I experience on any given day. It is a constant quest in my art to find the extraordinary in the ordinary. I start with my trusty sketchbook, which captures whatever amusing ideas that cross my brain. I think of them as Urban Folk Art. The name is derived partly from the many years I spent in Nova Scotia collecting folk art. I love the bright colors and simplicity of this style of art and wanted to incorporate it into my own style. I also have a great love of illustration which is a big part of this series and I find the contrast between black/white and color to be a very powerful visual force! In addition, I enjoy pop culture, animals, movies, and music and often let them influence my work!
