Through a variety of media, I present my impressions of persons, material objects and their surroundings. I use art to explore the nuances of tangible and implied relationships, seeking to register the density of our lived and perceived experiences. My goal is to touch others emotionally, spiritually, and intellectually. I received my undergraduate degree in Non-Traditional Studies with concentration in Fine Art from Northeastern Illinois University where I graduated cum laude. I also earned a Drawing Certificate from the Art Institute of Chicago.
