A Bit About Me
I am a mixed media artist who enjoys bold bright colors, lines, shapes and texture. Lots of texture. I like to play with different mediums and mix them altogether. You will often find text, iridescence and collage in my work. I tend to use my artistic voice to focus on my experiences as a citizen, woman and single mother.
I have been an artist and designer for over 20 years and am also a trained metalsmith. My work has been displayed in galleries nationwide - from Chicago to the California. I currently have pieces in the Illinois State Capitol in Springfield.
I enjoy what I do, and I enjoy sharing it with you. So please take a minute to look around and treat yourself to a piece of my work!
