I am a new and striving artist. I have always been drawn to the arts. When I was seven years old, I won an art contest in Chicago (my hometown), and it was displayed at the Art Institute of Chicago. Since then I have dabbled in many forms of art, such as singing, drawing, and ceramics. Most of my life has been devoted to my family and my work in higher education. In 2008 I moved from Chicago to Evansville, Indiana to be closer to my four sons after my husband passed. I am a re-emerging artist and take great pride in my work, especially my African and wind chime collection. It is my hope that others enjoy my art as much as I do.
