I was born to a family who loved art and artists. My parents would bring all of their children(5) on adventures to visit Artists in their studios. We grew up living with and loving art created by craftspeople, folk artists and fine artists.
To be creative, authentic, passionate and hardworking was admired and fostered in my childhood home and propels me to this day.
Currently I am working with marionettes, mask making,printmaking and oil painting.
I live in the Fox Valley of Northern Illinois with my wonderful family.

No additional framing is required. All of my paintings(except when noted) are gallery wrapped canvas on wooden frames, I paint all the way around. You can choose to frame them, but they will look beautiful hung directly on the wall.
