My  work is always focused on composition.  I think about the shapes I make  with objects such as trees, people, and animals, and also about the  shapes created in the background areas.

I  want my work to have a life of its own after it is created, and dislike  giving my work titles but do so for inventory purposes. The meaning or  interpretation of each work is left to the individual viewer.


My  passion for drawing is reflected in the many lines used in my work so  that sometimes my work is both drawing and painting. A limited palette  of three to four colors is used so that the focus remains on shape and  line.


The  inspirations in my life and art are nature and the human environment.  The woods and foliage that surround my home inspires many images in my  work.


Biography: I received my fine arts education at UWM -Milwaukee and UNM –  Albuquerque (BFA degree) and my Pre K-12 Art Specialist certification  at UW- Whitewater. Recently retired after 29 years from classroom  teaching K-8, I have illustrated three children’s books by Marilyn  Ellman.  My work has been on exhibit at various venues in Wisconsin and  New Mexico and can be found in collections across this country as well  as Europe and Asia. 


Currently serving as president of Geneva Lake Arts Foundation, I support its mission by volunteering for various programs which brings the arts to the community including Art in the Park.
