The Journal series began 2001, as a building block to re-entering fine art practice from a 14 year hiatus as a set designer then small business owner. In order to re engage and 'get the juices flowing',  I went back to my old journals from school and began doodling to rebuild my portfolio - expanding on allegorical figures and personal mythology within embolden colorful, compositions.

This Journal series is created with a storytelling base filled with imagery to delight and give a feeling of optimism, while acknowledging universal experiences within life’s pathways. The generality of this approach allows for over reaching thoughts and specific details to live in the same moment.

Re-ocurring Themes include:
Adaptability of Nature
Perpetuation of Life
