Biography


Art has been a large part of my life due to my grandfather and my elementary Art teacher.  My grandfather encouraged me to pick up pencils and paints to create.  They both made art enjoyable and are the main reason I became an elementary Art teacher myself.  I have been teaching since 1997 with the hopes of inspiring more children to have a passion for creating.  Since 2005, I have worked with Ingrid Albrecht, Chicago artist, and have taken classes with her.  She has pushed me to a new level and opened up new ways to create.

Watercolor painting and printmaking are the media of choice for me.  To escape in painting and see your vision unfold on paper is very rewarding.  My work focuses mainly on shape, movement and direction.  When I look at my subject or envision a world in my mind, I put down the  shapes and angles to tell my story.

My other passion is the city of Chicago.  The architecture, skyline, Chicago Cubs & Chicago Blackhawks make it an exciting place to be.  No matter how much time I spend in Chicago, I always find something new.  Traveling to other urban destinations, whether here or around the world, inspires me as well.  Other favorite cities are London, New York and Boston.  I enjoy painting these subjects as abstract realism all the way to complete abstract.

Urban landscapes, especially Chicago, will always be an important part of my work.
