My paintings and drawings are an ongoing visual narrative that presents the richness of cultural diversity of all people and present day issues. As I sit and sketch in barbershops, cafes, and other places of communal gathering I am taken by every person I meet.  Like Bios and Zoe, we carry the threads of those that came before and weave this into the path today. I am a visual story teller.

The barbershop setting is about the stories that people share in places of communal exchange and also my own thoughts about the world, and current events and the people I meet when I sketch in barbershops and mall settings.
