At the age of one, I won a painting contest at the county fair and haven't looked back since (that award-winning painting hangs in my studio).
I taught and wrote curricula about masterpieces at The Art Institute of Chicago for many years before making the move to set up a studio practice at home while raising my children. After over two decades in Chicago, I recently moved to Tennessee with my husband and four children.
My paintings are in private collections around the world. My first illustrated book, Artists In Residence with Chronicle Books is now out in the world and available for purchase.
