"My work is inspired by the children’s books Where the Wild Things Are, Peter Pan’s Lost Boys, and The Very Hungry Caterpillar."

Their creation is an impulsive process of moving around recycled scrap paper and finding what speaks to me organically. Next comes the dancing pose and paper pattern. Then the quote and specific animal headdress. The quotes comes from poets, artists, song writers, and more.


Each work uses recycled paper, is printed on 100% recycled paper, and like the stories that inspire them, completely focused on the joy and well-being provided by nature. The purpose of these prints is to find what inspires you and keep it as a friendly reminder

My shop is now a partner with the National Forest Foundation. Every print sold = one tree planted through this amazing organization.
