Welcome

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

At age 14 I misheard the word ‘nude’ for ‘new’ and signed up for a life drawing class with new (nude) models.  So my journey began. My passion for drawing has evolved from my early years  at the YAS- School of the Art Institute of Chicago to exhibiting in Chicago, Houston, and Las Vegas. Currently showing at Art2art Gallery in Tivoli Village in Las Vegas.  “Foreshortening on steroids, ” these ‘pin head’ figures are all drawn in ink and colored pencil.  I’ve been working on maps, sheet music and prints of my own photography combining my love for nature and life drawing.  All pieces are one of a kind/originals.  Although it took me 50+ years to get to the point that I can do these drawings, my goal is to share my artwork.  (Available for commisions.
