I am located in the NW Suburbs of Chicago, but as you will see, I do work for clients across the country. I have exhibited and taught nationwide, and accept both corporate and individual commissions. Please contact me to discuss your ideas; I can customize your vision, whether traditional or contemporary - to fit the parameters of your project.Thank you.

Looking out at a layer of fresh snow and the white canvas it presents, sets the stage for a new year.  The year will unfold with numerous creative opportunities most of which are unknown to me at this writing.  Working with clients who want to explore possibilities, enlist a knowledgeable, accomplished, and savvy artist and calligrapher is what I do.  My background also extends to paper and print which helps in an arena that is constantly changing.  I'm available to chat, meet, advise, plot and plan to exceed your vision!
I look forward to all the new that a new year has in store.
