I have worked as a graphic designer and illustrator, photo editor, communications coordinator, and art instructor. During my years as full-time parent I became a University of Illinois Extension Master Gardener, and volunteered many hours for the Art Adventure program. I currently volunteer for Thundercats Fencing Team, doing graphic design and social media.
I have a degree in Fine Art, and studied photography, film, art history, ballet, as well as Spanish, French, and Italian. I love learning, and continue my interest in these subjects. I’m an experienced designer, illustrator, and photographer working in both corporate offices and non-profits.
I love creating things in the garden, the kitchen, and in the studio. FLORA, FAUNA, and FOOD. I observe line, color, and movement. The petals of a flower resemble the lines of the body, flow of a skirt, or peaks of a voluminous meringue. Each is beautiful and provides me with a spark of joy and feeling of wonder and recognition of the changes in nature, seasons of the year, and passage of time.
