"Painting and drawing are my artistic passions and I have enjoyed teaching art at Illinois Central College, Peoria Campus for 10 years. As an artist, I am not afraid to take a risk, and I enjoy the challenge of experimenting with many different types of media including acrylics, watercolors, and mixed media. My painting style is varied depending on what inspires me at the moment. I paint in both a realist and abstract style. I am fascinated by "found objects" and often use these recycled items to add elements of texture and dimension to my artwork."

"Photography is my passion...making images, exhibiting and teaching photography.

I grew up in Peoria, Illinois, in a family rich with artists, musicians and writers.

My undergraduate work was done at University of Saint Mary, Leavenworth, Kansas, where I had the great fortune of being taught by people who were not only excellent teachers but exceptional artists and have been generous mentors throughout my artistic career.

I received my professional photographic training at the Maine Photographic Workshop in Rockport, Maine, where I was a resident for a full year; I earned a Master of Fine Art from Bradley University, Peoria, Illinois.

The process of image making through photography has always been and still is magic to me. Whether looking through the lens, viewing a capture on the back of a digital camera or on a computer or watching a print come up in a tray of developer...magic. The challenge for any craftsman is to perfect his medium. It is my goal to capture the best picture in camera through the use of all the exposure controls that a camera has to offer."
