Acrylic // Arts Educator
I love playing with paint and color. It’s fun to layer acrylic paint with a palette knife and watch the magic of the medium take form. Shades of blue and green are my favorite!
After graduating from Ferris State with a degree in Commercial Art, I gained experience as a graphic designer while interfacing with business promotion and the print industry. I have enjoyed the freedom of breaking away from the world of registration and exact measurements to bringing design elements to life on canvas. Creativity comes from my soul. A piece of my soul is left in each composition.
Born and raised in Jackson, and now living in Tecumseh, Michigan in the winter, I have spent summers on Coryell Island since early childhood. I love the water, the cedars, the rocks, and the friendly people of the Les Cheneaux Islands.
When I’m not creating art, I am most likely having fun with family, hanging out with friends, and playing my ukulele and encouraging folks to sing-a-long!
My favorite sandwich, you ask?? Definitely a bacon, lettuce, and tomato (BLT) with Miracle Whip and a side of potato chips!! Oh yes!
