The Artist Says:

Painting is the release of impressions that stimulate my heart with emotion. There is so much beauty and excitement in brushwork and color. The constant challenge of expressing my vision simply and clearly and beautifully is my motivation.


I have been painting since I was ten years old. That’s when I had my first oil painting classes as a private student one summer. My grandmother's gift to me. I have been painting ever since.
At the age of twenty, I took another oil painting class at a private art school in Wauconda, IL. The wonderful woman who owned this School, took me under her wing and exposed me to a world of Art that I had no idea about and trained me to become one of her teachers as well. She saw something in me,  that she believed in.
She built a future for me that I was totally unaware of at the time. She gave me the confidence to survive on my own when she sold the school and left town.  I was terrified.
It’s been over 45 years.  I have my own Fine Art School for 28 years now and it is a mirror image of my mentor. She and her husband, taught me how to succeed in a business and my own passion to Paint has continued to grow in ways I never knew it would.
I am thrilled to say that my work has been collected by hundreds of art lovers around the world. Winning top National & Regional awards, confirms, that my hard work and dedicated passion has had some remarkable rewards.
Please subscribe to my occasional newsletter to see the latest paintings fresh from the easel, and special offerings specifically for my collectors and interested art lovers. Drawing and Painting has been my life, my passion and my inspiration from a very young age.
