I have been drawing and painting since early childhood and teaching art for more than 30 years, honing my craft through my own education and teaching others the fundamentals of art. I gained experience spearheading a range of gallery exhibitions during my tenure as exhibition director at Hinsdale Center for the Arts. Currently I paint full time at my studio in Cornelia Arts Building and on location in Chicago IL.
