When and how did you start making art?
Drawing and painting was an escape when I was a child.
I continued to create art throughout my life and even studied at Pratt Institute for fine art in my undergraduate years.
What inspires your work?
I find inspiration in everyday life, in nature, and from local artists to the masters in art history.
There is nothing like getting caught up in working on a piece and feeling it take form into something beautiful.
How would you describe Green Bay/NE Wisconsin’s arts community?
It is growing every year and is an amazing thing to become a part of.
What is the best advice you have for other artists?
There are no limitations to your creativity and imagination.
Never let anyone take that away from you.
Where can people find your work?
