About the Artist...
As a graduate of Chicago's School of the Art Institute, I have been creating and teaching art in Chicago and surrounding suburbs since 1982. I have studied art in Paris, London, Zacatecas and served for a time as an Ambassador of the Arts in Brazil.
My lifelong endeavor has been to improve the quality of the human behavior and experience through art. My artwork resounds. It captures social inequities in powerful and unique ways. My life experiences and travels have sat me at the table of many cultures, be it across the sea or across the border lines of Chicago - giving me firsthand knowledge of what it’s like to be "the other." The pathos depicted in these pieces reaches across all borders of race, gender orientation, and religion, and grabs the viewer with a very real sense of human longing for acceptance.
At other turns, I celebrate everything that is beautiful and free. With these, my lighter pieces, I revel in the joy and strength that is inherent in all of us, and allows us to glimpse into the mysteries of Eros, as the good soul. My work connects to what we have within.
