Art is the universal communicator. Not only the Deaf are challenged to communicate exactly what we mean. The deaf sign for "I love You" is incorporated in most of my creations. Whimsical movement, vibrant colors and mystic overtones combine to create all the themes seen in my art. Far East, Asian, Egyptian, Zuni, Greek and Aztec cultural influences flow within my designs. A world traveler, I am always on the move. Please contact my cousin Shelly Staten.

I have been toting a camera ever since I took a cross-country road trip in 1971.  Just a few years ago, however, I gave up my Big Girl camera for an iPhone and iPad....and then started to carry a sketchbook, too.  It is a thrill to play with them all in today's dazzling, digital darkroom.....possibilities abound!  I offer works printed on fine art paper as well as metal.

The differences between my art and photography are night and day, like my varied interests. I’m constantly amazed by the serene beauty and magical happenings that happen in Nature. Architecture has always been an interest of mine as well. The juxtaposition of the organic with man-made is most interesting. My drawings and paintings often convey a sensual feel. I depict the beautiful nude female with a simplification of form.

The subject matter that I am interested in is representational. I strive to be thorough and accurate and yet catch what is fleeting and lively. The work I'm most proud of shows life as I see it: fatally flawed, but amazingly beautiful.
