“A Rebel with Paws” digital collage, sizes vary


My art is a whimsical expression of animals and flowers that use a diorama of layers and custom patterns to create dimension and tell stories with heart. I have named my style Whimsical Digital Collage.

I have spent 39+ years working in the graphic and instructional design arenas for companies like Disney, Apple, Microsoft, and T-Mobile. I have taken these experiences and created my style and stories that teach. I have also been featured in many galleries across north America.

“Hare in the Rainbow Snow” digital collage, sizes vary


I have always had a passion to create. Whether it is art, music, drama or storytelling, it doesn’t matter. This brings me to how art saved my life. The first time was in high school trying to find a way to fit into a new school. The second time was after surviving a life-threatening illness.
