I began making paintings over 10 years ago after a trip to my friends grandmothers house, Mary Sears in Franklin , N.C.. I saw Mary’s joy expressed all over her home, she painted on rugs, ironing boards, even doors. She gave me a paintbrush and some paints and I was set free to paint the world as I see it. Paint I did!, until every wall in my own home was filled. My very first show was in Bristol, Vermont at the Walkover Gallery. I started with house paints and grew into oils. Now I am exploring printmaking and marionette building.
I live in the Fox Valley of Northern Illinois with my wonderful family.
To Purchase artwork:
Simply contact me for more details using the form at the bottom of this page. We can arrange either a showing of the work or I can ship it directly to you.
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.
