I am a Chicago artist working with mixed media large scale paintings, from my Wicker Park studio. My recent interest in collage has led to an expansive body of work that includes digital transfer images as collage.

From my studio I offer individual painting/mixed media classes as well as hosting open studios.
I have exhibited at major galleries in Chicago and my work has been included in a major art fair. In July of 2013 my work was selected for inclusion in Forum Eugenio de Almeida's Portas Abertas exhibition in Evora, Portugal.
In 2010 my work was selected for inclusion in the publication of New American Landscapes.
Conceptual approaches to my process often result in recontextualizing my work. Earlier this year, for instance, I re- visited an earlier painting prior to 2000. Developing a puzzle template I cut the original painting into puzzle shapes. The shapes were then arranged/re-distributed onto four smaller canvases. Where there was one stored and rolled canvas, there exists now four new works.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Drawing

I studied painting/ drawing at The school of the Art institute of Chicago consequently earning my BFA.
I have been drawing from childhood. Presently drawing is used as a tool for documenting processes in my large large scale mixed media works. All of my art works begin as doodles that progress into varying degrees of representation, abstract or conceptual art forms.
Figure drawing continues as a strong foundation in my studio practice.

Painting

I recently graduated from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago with a BFA in painting. I have exhibited at both national and international exhibitions. I have taught painting, sculpture and mixed media classes with Urban Gateways in several Chicago schools.
I've been an independent art instructor, offering individual art classes for adults and children.
Students walk out of my classroom with a greater understanding of the art-making process and a lasting knowledge of materials and techniques. They are well informed about contemporary and historical art movements and have been introduced to the art forms of different cultures. They are aware of the impact of art on today’s society and curious about contemporary issues. But most importantly, they have made progress in discovering personal meanings that inform their art making
