About me

I am a self-taught artist who enjoys the beauty of nature and the exhilaration of observing others enjoyment in my creations. Living in as well as visiting around the world such as Sante Fe, New York, Taiwan, China and Canada have influenced my art. Owning a landscaping business for a number of years has contributed to my talents. The effects of cultures from around the world along with the experience on my travels have been absorbed into the artistic style I create for my clients.



Was fussing with the pond yesterday, passed my fountain several times and marveled (again) at the Beauty. Love it. Backyard birds do too! Thanks!


It is a wonderful pleasure to work with an artist who understands your desires and executes them to perfection. Strider is just that artist. My husband and I recently purchased three pillar fountains from Strider and learned through experience, that he takes every project (and customer) to heart. He always kept us updated on his progress, brought us to view similar fountains of former clients, and delivered exactly what we hoped to have. I should note that Strider always blushes at the mention of being called an artist – I assure you, he is – and even more than that, he is kind and humble. He is also dedicated to creating practical, structurally sound, beautiful fountains and I recommend him wholeheartedly.
