I love taking my dog Hero for walks. Here's a picture of me at the Santa Hustle 5K. I like to watch movies and TV shows on Netflix during the horrible Chicago winters. In the summer, I enjoy traveling and riding my bike. Did you guess I'm also a Cubs fan?
Art is a personal experience for both the artist and the audience. Each piece creates an emotion or feeling that is different based on one's experience. I feel very blessed to be able to share my art with others. It is a great joy. I love the challenge of different mediums and expressing my ideas through my art.
I have taken advantage of the opportunities to learn art and teaching of art at both the Art Institute of Chicago and the School of the Art Institute. I have taken classes online with CalArts, Jane Davenport and Lilla Roger's MATS classes. If you can't find me drawing at a local coffee shop, you might see me sketching on the train or even at the Art Institute.
I am involved in Chicago's Urban Sketchers. I have been in local group art shows in the Aurora, Il area. Aurora has a growing art community.
I am available for freelance illustration. Feel free to contact me at the email listed below.
