PAINTER, TEACHER, ARTIST
I am a painter, sculptor, and printmaker working primarily with the human figure. Over the course of my life I have experimented with numerous styles but my interest in the human figure has been a constant. Early in my career I developed chaotic patterns that seemed to flow directly out of my subjects and into the surrounding canvas. Even today I use abstract patterns, not just for decoration but to tie together my various elements. These connect the figures to each other, and to the viewer.
I've been drawing and painting all my life. As a young child all I wanted to do was draw and that interest shaped my life. I spent 30 years as an art and computer teacher in a suburban Chicago school district.
Enjoy pilates. Find me eating out, or in my Lincolnwood studio!
