I am an artist working primarily in acrylics and mixed media (though I do oil occasionally). My work is influenced by the jazz and the jazz dynamic in life. I live and work in the Kansas City area. My work has been collected worldwide and I have exhibited in New York, Newport, San Francisco, College Park (MD), and of course Kansas City.  More detailed information from prior exhibits can be submitted upon request.
