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.

Having taken many in person art classes and participated in several online membership programs with artists from all over the world, I currently paint in acrylic paint and watercolors, 


When making original digital artwork (without AI) I use my experience of working with paints, to create original images that fulfill my desire to create energetic 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.
