|I started drawing and painting as a teenager with friends and I’ve never stopped. I have attended three schools for the arts: Edgewood College in Madison, Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, and the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee. I graduated with high honors with a double major in drawing/painting and printmaking. My other passions include photography, ceramic sculptures, and writing. Art has changed my life. I believe the passion I have felt has moved me to be more of a romantic at heart.
