Working primarily in graphite, I strive to capture the nature of fabrics as well as the mood of my subject. A spark in the eye, a burst of motion, or quiet reflection taking the subject beyond a photograph, rich in texture and feeling. From portraiture to fashion, my work tells a story. The viewer should be curious, hopefully drawn in, to complete it on their own.
I have attended Minneapolis College of Art & Design, classes in digital graphics, University of Minnesota, drawing & painting and have earned an Associate Arts Degree in commercial art from Minneapolis Technical College. My interest in fashion and clothing construction has led to employment as a costumer for Guthrie Theater, Minnesota Dance Theatre, Minnesota Opera and Children’s Theatre Company.
Exhibits of my work have been held in Minneapolis at Geometrie Gallery and The Loring Cafe & Bar and in Venice, California at Sponto Gallery.
I have been represented by Ann Koeffler Artist Representation for the past 15 years. Since she has recently retired I am seeking new representation.
