I started out in the theatre world designing costumes for Chicago Children’s Theatre, Northwestern University, Chicago Symphony Orchestra and various film companies. I started using some collage techniques in my costume renderings. I realized I enjoyed making the renderings better than any other part of the designing process. Eventually my renderings turned into my artwork. Now I make mixed media pieces inspired by various showgirls, religious icons, musicians and other random legendary types. My art work has been shown in Illinois, New York, California and Florida notably with Chicago Artists’ Collective and featured in the House of Blues Hotel. I have recently moved shop (and the rest of my life) to Melbourne, Australia.
