Get to know me!
Welcome to my gallery! I am so excited you're here! Thank you for taking interest in my art journey, I can't wait to share what I love with you. Even though I create what I'm feeling and seeing in my own mind, it's still so amazing to see what you guys love, and which pieces speak to you. To see viewers so moved by my pieces really is a feeling hard to describe, and all I can say is, I'm glad my art can do that for you. It can be for you whatever it needs to be. Let's see where this leads. Enjoy!
I hope you enjoy my current work as it is an outgrowth of many years spent working in oils, acrylics and pen & ink sketching. I'm striving to be free in my work with not too much emphasis on perfection. I feel that let's the viewer "see" more of what their mind likes about a piece. Growing up, I studied painting through youth and adult classes at Kendall College of Art and Design, and pursued a career in Landscape Architecture as a way to draw on my love of art and the outdoors. I've had the opportunity to travel to Europe on several occasions, which has been a great inspiration for design, as well as the opportunity to create a collection of fun sketches. While much of what I do continues to be self-taught, I'm always looking for a new challenge and inspiration around me. I love gardening, tennis, rummaging at estate sales for that next unique find, and nothing beats a sunset over the beach of Lake Michigan. If I'm not painting or strolling along the sand, you can find me in the backyard trying to create a jungle oasis with all the plants I can find.
