On a constant quest for balance as an artist, instructor, marketing professional and Mom, I carve out creative time - sometimes quite literally. 

 

My artistic passions include relief block carving/printmaking, mixed media, wearable art jewelry and sculptural assemblage.

 

The meditative quality in carving a block of wood or building up layers of collage, paint, metal and ephemera – waiting, reflecting, then working some more – allows for luminosity and serendipity essential to my process. My current work is primarily figurative, incorporating nature – revealing surrealistic themes of domesticity, stigma, isolation, adaptability and perseverance.

My technical art background originates from the American Academy of Art (1992) and I most recently graduated from Elmhurst College with a degree in Communications and minor in Fine Art(2017).

 

I teach mixed media and metal workshops and am certified Precious Metal Clay Instructor. I'm also available to jury art exhibitions.
