I’ve studied under many well-known U.P. Artists including Alice Powers of Escanaba; Mary Ann Beckwith, Professor of Art at Michigan Tech in Houghton; Thomas Cappuccio, Professor of Art at Northern Michigan University in Marquette; Bill Hamilton of Little Lake; Maggie Lynn of Marquette; Kathy Connover of Marquette. I have also worked with regional artists including John Salmanes of Minnesota and Mark Bruegamann of Wisconsin. I’ve had exhibits in Saulte Ste. Marie, Alpena, Gladstone, Escanaba, and Menominee, Michigan. I’m a member of the Bonifas Arts Center and East Ludington Art Gallery, both in Escanaba. Experimenting with watercolor collage, I was recognized in 2004 as best watercolorist at the annual Waterfront Arts Festival held in Escanaba; a festival that included artists throughout the Upper Peninsula and Northern Wisconsin area. At this event I also received the prestigious “Pursuit of Excellence” award for my collage “City Reflections”.
