I am a visual artist and poet who has been drawing, painting, and writing since childhood. I use a variety of media including pencil, watercolor, and oil paint, and often combine watercolor with pencil. In the past 10 years I have studied watercolor with Leslie Hirshfield at the Noyes Cultural Center in Evanston, IL, portraiture and the figure with Gay Riseborough at Studio 1123, Evanston, IL, and oil painting under the guidance of Ann Ponce in her studio in Chicago, IL. Although I paint a variety of subjects, I have a special interest in portraiture and the figure. At a young age, I developed a fascination for anatomy and the human body from the works of Michelangelo and Leonardo Da Vinci. A career in nursing and some study of medical illustration give me a knowledge base from which to work.
