Illuminator, Heraldic artist, Visionary artist and educator
“My intent as an Artist is to use universal symbolism and sacred words to create images that speak to people on a soul level and a message to encourage them to find balance within. My vision is that these images will inspire and challenge people to become more; to search within and connect with a deeper aspect of themselves.”
