I opened my art studio in 2013 at the Bridgeport Art Center in Chicago, Illinois after retiring from exciting teaching career. I relentlessly create. My studio is used mostly for showing my work and showing the works of fellow artists. I've enjoyed my studio: I've enjoyed the making and creating, hanging and re-hanging, arranging and analyzing, storing and the solitude that my studio can afford. After three years I am open to change. I will be creating juried art competitions, hosting art parties, meetings, lectures, and holding art classes for both kids and adults. My works reveal the integrity of the human spirit, the sensitivities of life, the unity of family, the fidelity of friends, and pride in my heritage.
