My career in art education began as an art teacher, then administrator in Chicago Public Schools. Later I became a teaching artist and administrator at Marwen, a wonderful non-profit organization in Chicago that educates and inspires under- served youth through the visual arts. Loving the outdoors, I am naturally drawn to plants and wildlife as subject matter for my art created mostly in graphite and watercolor. I am currently exploring the simplicity and elegance of creating finished art with graphite pencils.
