My teaching experience includes graphic design history, typography, and portfolio development. I have taught Adobe CS and have developed my own website. I am versatile in a number of digital applications.

I received my Master of Fine Arts degree in in Painting in 1973 from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. I am a practicing artist and have shown my work in museums and other venues in the US, Austria, Slovak Republic, Czech Republic, Malaysia, England, and Germany. My work includes painting, video, neon installations, digital prints, and photography. I joined the faculty at Barat College, Lake Forest, Illinois in 2000 and College of Lake County, Grayslake, Illinois in 2004. I maintain a studio in Chicago and now work full time as an artist.

I am versatile in many media. Under my careful guidance my students learn to think for themselves, built confidence, and acquire skills. My students and I form a team. I tend to ask a lot of questions and my students provide the answers.

Art is my life. I am a member of Artists of Eastbank, Bridgeport Art Center, and Chicago Sculpture International. I love art and enjoy sharing my enthusiasm and expertise.

I am a native German speaker and have taught German at College of Lake County, Grayslake, Illinois.
