The Artist’s Profile was featured on the PBS Real Simple TV nationwide, WTTW Chicago, Chicago Fox News and Northwest Herald Multimedia Video.
I work full time as a professional artist and maintain a rigorous studio practice. I want to create new interpretations of the everyday milieu and capture the viewer’s imagination. My work is considered representational and rich in content that relates to the world of people, places and things. This synthesis of a multifaceted visual world is a reflection of my lifetime of travel from childhood to the present day.
My passion for art grows every day as I find more depth and richness to discover in the continuous evolution of my creative process. From the idea in my mind’s eye to the final work of art, there is no end to what I can achieve with the sensuous and expressive qualities inherent in the application of paint and beauty of line. While my work bridges the boundary between representation and abstraction I strive to reveal fresh ways of seeing the world. My art brings me closer the deepest and most sublime moments of life. I find a unique visual richness in the everyday world around me, and in the people, places and events that shape our time.
