Graduating from Miami University with a degree in Painting I moved to Chicago and then to Glenview, Illinois.
My art has always been abstract and colorful. I have many influences for the many stages of my artlife. Ellsworth Kelly said-“I’ve always wanted….I wanted to give people joy.” As one of my strongest influences, the Colorist has inspired me to explore color as a singular subject, and to regard shape as more than just geometry. I blend my own colors inspired by nature, birds, pixels, ethnic fabric and music. I also digitize and duplicate many final designs in order to print them and scale them up and down in size, for maximum joy.
