Career

Bio

            I have always loved to draw and paint. My mother, who was very artistic, taught me the basics of sketching while I was still in grade school. She encouraged my creativity. I am so grateful to have had her love and support for my artwork.

            In 1984, I started my own business. It was completely unrelated to art, so I had to vent my creative impulses through illustrating newspaper ads, creating window graphics for local businesses, and doing watercolor portraits in my spare time.

            A career change in 1994 afforded me an opportunity to devote more time to art. I was able to take workshops at the Art Academy Of Cincinnati to learn more about oil painting. Over the years i have studied with Dan Gerhartz, Laura Robb, Susan Lyon and C.W. Mundy as well as others. The time i spent learning from these masters was invaluable!

            Over the years, I have completed many commissions for both public and private collections.  I had my first solo show in 1998 at Masterpiece Gallery, Cincinnati Ohio. In addition I also have shown works at Solar Flare Gallery, Rising Sun, IN, Chelsea Fine Art, Lake Forest, IL, and Brown County Art Gallery, Nashville, IN.

            My paintings can presently be purchased at the Hoosier Salon Gallery in New Harmony, Indiana, Art on Main in Madison, Indiana, The Framery in Lawrenceburg, IN, , The Great Crescent Brewery Artisan Center in Aurora, IN and Art Guild Studios in Aurora, IN. You may also purchase paintings by contacting me in person at my e-mail address or by phone.

            The Theatre In Motion, located in New York City, selected one of my paintings in 1998 for a poster design to promote the production of The Promise of the Park. This musical was featured at the NYC centennial Celebration in Central Park. In May of 2000, I created another poster design, which was used at the International Disabilities Conference in Rochester, NY as well as a poster for the Museum of the City of New York of their antique toy display.

             Of course, I still find the time to paint the still-lifes, landscapes  and portraits I love. In each painting I try to invite the viewer to share the beauty that compells me to paint.

Art on the Street

 
Here is the latest addition to the "Making  Faces In Aurora" mural project.  These handsome guys took a moment to pose next to their likenesses before it is installed in it's permanent location on the Aurora, Indiana riverfront. 
 
I'm honored to have been chosen by Main Street, Aurora as the artist to present an exciting new public artwork in Aurora,  Indiana. It's called "Making Faces in Aurora".
It is a large scale portrait mural project on a riverfront warehouse on Indiana Highway 56 ( 102 Judiciary Street, 47001). 
 These portraits are of people whose families have submitted their photos to be added.  These friends and family members  are now permanently honored and remembered by all who live in or visit Aurora, Indiana.
