You can take the girl out of the Chicago but you can’t take the Chicago spirit out of the girl!  That pretty much describes what motivates my edgier style of artwork.

child's Play -mixed media,printmaking

(above)  Child’s Play was a problematic/naughty creation that had taken me three years to create.  It began as a collagraph print that went rogue on me, so I tucked it away in a drawer for a few years. As time went by,  I had grown and evolved as an artist. So when I found the collagraph print, I knew exactly what to do with it, to make it into an interesting composition.

(below) My series of surrealistic charcoal drawings title Bombus (Latin word meaning BOOM) expresses the feeling/action that I wanted to portray in the drawing Bombus!

(below) This composition titled BILLIE  is created with handmade paper.   The paper pulp was applied to a free-form mold.  Once the pulp had dried I applied a variety of permanent metallic paints and mounted the sculpture onto a wood background that’s covered with fabric.  Please stop in the studio to find out why this composition was given this title!

(below) The series title SNAP has a special story connected to my dear childhood friend that inspired me to create artwork using a very unusual method.  Please stop in the studio and ask me to tell you the story behind this artwork!

I’ve created dance themed artwork to honor my families love of dance! My  father is a graduate from Arthur Murray School for Ballroom  Dance in Chicago. So my parents were avid Ballroom Dancers. My daughter Katherine is a former student of Main Street Conservatory of Dance. She is also a former Dance Choreographer for the Wisconsin State 4-H Showcase Singers.  So the art of dancing has always been in my blood!
