I'm a Contemporary Painter in Saint Charles, Illinois USA.  I studied art making & interactive media design in the Midwest, USA while helping to run a business and raise a family.


For me making art is like a conversation, I make the opening statement, respond & continue the dialogue until there is nothing left to say. I believe that in sharing my artwork online & in public that I take that conversation out into the world.

I paint in acrylic paint and watercolors, with the Wayne Art League in Illinois, USA and in my home art studio. I also work along side artists online with Pam Caughey in her Art & Success program.


When making digital artwork I use my experience of working with paints, to create original paintings that fulfill my desire to create energetic, layered, experimental work.

I exhibit my artwork as often as possible and I make it available for purchase online.  You may not be ready to purchase a painting right now but stay connected with me & subscribe below.
