I am an artist working in northern Illinois and have spent most of my life in the Midwest. I have been a high school art teacher, a sales rep for a distributor of art supplies, a business owner, and a fine art consumer specialist for Prismacolor and Sharpie.

My works have been exhibited in NY, CA, NC, IL, and MT. Two of my pieces of art are on permanent display at the Chicago Rockford International Airport. My artwork and techniques have been included in books by Steven Miller and Ed Brickler.

Currently I am a member of the Lakes Region Watercolor Guild and the Momentum Art Guild. I create works of art that depict the beauty of nature, the spirit of people and animals, and sometimes humorous illustrations.

Commissions welcome - please contact me if you would want me to create a painting just for you.
