ARTIST STATEMENT - There is nothing quite like painting on silk. When the dyes hit the silk, they just explode with color and amazing intensity. Without a resist line, the dyes just keep on moving creating a very challenging surface, just adding a little salt or a little alcohol changes the chemistry and makes it even more interesting Included in this exhibition are several pieces that employ the sunlight to create positive and negative spaces that illuminate shapes that are found in nature by applying special sun sensitive dyes.


I have always been inspired by nature in my paintings, and I hope the viewer can take a journey with me through the African dunes of Namibia, or a stroll through the woods at Shelby Farms, or appreciating what is growing in my yard.


I received my BFA from a Barat Collage, in Lake Forest, Illinois, an art education degree from the Art institute of Chicago, and my MFA from Western Connecticut State University.
