This is a mixed media portrait of a friend. The painted burlap floats inside a painted wood panel.

My first large piece in quite a while, this is a reflection of personal boundaries.

This small painting titled “Memory” on wood board represents how one’s path is shaded by one’s past actions.

Shadow Sketching


5″x8″ pen drawing

I’ve stepped away from book sketching for a while, but I think it is time to return.  I enjoy how much less pressure to work without error.  “Woops.  Next page!”

VISAGE – Out of the Ordinary Portraits

I am joined by artists Cole Hauschildt, Nancy Merkling, and Angela Swan in an exhibit at the Dole (Lakeside Legacy Arts Park) to share our unique takes on portrait art.  Come join us on 9.6.12!

Atomic Life

I have my first ever solo show at the Dole Mansion in Crystal Lake, Illinois. I’ll be showing over 60 mid-century inspired pieces in two separate Galleries (Dole and Sage). It should be a big night!
