I am a self-taught visual artist working primarily in hand-embroidery with a special interest in “memento mori”, a genre that reflects on the impermanence and fragility of life, nations and human endeavors.

I began my career as an artist in the late 1990’s after working for many years as an advertising writer and creative director. That background influences much of my work, and textual elements appear frequently. I especially appreciate the flexibility of working with hand-embroidery on textiles as it offers scope for both small details and expansive matrix. I’ve exhibited internationally in galleries and museums including The Carnegie Museum of Art, The Andy Warhol Museum, The Mattress Factory in the USA, NordArt in Germany and the Emily Harvey Gallery in Venice, and I’ve been selected for residencies in Venice, Spain, France, and Australia as well as throughout the United States.

A “memento mori” to cheer you. There is, alas, no escape, but there is
amusement provided along the way.
