Byron Center, MI, United States

Following the loss of my older son in 1999, my lifelong interest in art became much more intense. I found that drawing helped me cope with the unspeakable grief of his loss. At the same time, I met and began studying with the accomplished local artist, Loretta Sailors, who helped me launch a personal journey of artistic discovery. To enhance my growth as an artist, I've participated in many workshops and classes. I'm pleased to have been mentored by the internationally-known artist, Alex Powers. His guidance has strongly influenced my style and work. Portrait painting is my passion. While my portraits capture a likeness of each subject, my objective is to dig deeper and, in doing so, make visible their soul and the essence of their humanity. My award-winning work has appeared in juried shows, including, among others, the ISEA Exhibition, the West Michigan Regional Competition, the Grand Rapids Regional Arts Exhibition, and the Celebration of the Arts. I've earned my signature status with the International Society of Experimental Artists. Among other venues, my work is also displayed at Flat River Gallery and Framing in Lowell, MI.
