Printmaker, Metal and Mixed Media Artist designer, writer, adventure seeker & aspiring yogi
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 printmaking, mixed media, metal and the business of art workshops.
