I've been an artist in Kankakee County Illinois (not far from Chicago), for the past 11 years. I enjoy showing my work at festivals, gallery exhibitions, and other events in the region. I lead workshops in informal settings and have a penchant for painting en plein air. I started showing my art in 2007 while living in Atlanta Georgia. I grew up in Illinois and studied Philosophy at Western Illinois University.
I've also quietly been a writer, penning speculative stories infused with literary overtones. My first book was published in 2019 and includes a Pushcart Prize-nominated poem. Adding the "/Writer" to my Artist title has been invigorating to my creative muses! I am continuously working on new written and visual works. ... Follow my journey on Instagram or Facebook.
