Everyone admires angels, but I like to think that sometimes we amaze the hell out of them.
I create full-time at my Collier House Studio. My works contain what I love about design, color, dignity, beauty, & innocence.
Also, all of the arts, family, animals, people watching, GirlEffect.org, IL-RedCross.org, Kiva.org, Heifer.org., & ChildrensHopeInt.org, affect my work.
Formal traditional visual art training began at age four & continued through high school with a variety of teachers.
Then, I earned a university talent grant which paid all my art supply & studio fees until I graduated.
The human figure is important in my works. I attend Life Drawing classes, so that I have abundant reference material & access to models more inexpensively than if I hired them to sit for me alone. Abstracted forms are another favorite subject.
Works are available in watercolor, acrylic, gouache, pencil, ink, charcoal, & mixed media.
Realistic, one-of-a-kind, clay bas-relief sculptures are produced from time to time -- molds are never used or made of these sculpts.
