I teach elementary art and produce art. I'm passionate about color, design, and drawing. I've illustrated for over 20 years working with such companies as Neiman Marcus, Marshall Fields, Target, Nordstroms, Running Press, Scholastic and many more. I'm inspired by my family, students, master artists of all kinds and our everyday surroundings. I'm grateful to be an artist and hope to reach my potential as a creative individual.
Various awards locally but I'm most proud that I have a piece of work in the permanent collection of Women Artist's for the Society of Illustrators in NYC. I have created two Neiman Marcus Christmas catalog covers that was also recreated in ornaments, cookie tins, snow globe and other objects. My most exciting projects was for Dayton's/ Marshall Fields for a Christmas campaign "12 Days of Christmas around the World." The work was adapted into window displays in the Chicago store on State Street. Also, the interior designs of the store were inspired by the art work. Various products including a children's book, snow globe, Christopher Radko ornament, hand painted ornaments, bags, stationary etc were created. A 3 dimensional visual art show was created in Minneapolis for the public viewing. The original art was purchased by Daytons.
