Biography


I'm a  Chicago based artist,  focused mainly on animal and landscape painting.   The natural world hypnotizes me with her light and color, and  nourishes me with her mystery and beauty. My other body of work involves conjuring images  from an inner world, informed by dreams,  poetry, and storytelling. With gratitude,  I take my small place in the timeless line of artists who have been fascinated with the  intellectual and spiritual aspects of painting.  I feel very fortunate to have this passion. The challenge of trying to convey what is still preserved on our  astounding, blue planet has never stopped thrilling me.
