Biography & Artist's Statements

I fell in love with batik while living in the U.S. Virgin Islands. I love old architecture and there were so many beautiful places on St. Croix. The cracking that occurs in batik seemed perfect for interpreting the age of beauty of the old manors and plantations that dotted the island. It also was effect in recreating the memories  I had of adobe and white wash from my years in Honduras.

I moved to Palisade, Colorado after hurricane Hugo destroyed 90% of St. Croix. It has been a great place to live and work, but my inspirations still come from the Caribbean, Latin America, and my travels abroad.
