"After graduating from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1981 with a BFA in studio art, I worked in the Architectural profession until 1999, at that time, I began working fulltime as an architectural illustrator. Working primarily in watercolor, project illustration was something I had done throughout my architectural career. During my 15 years as an Illustrator, I am grateful to have been a member of the American Society of Architectural Illustrators and to have received numerous “Awards of Excellence” for my work. (2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2012 & 2013) I began painting in Plein Air events in 2014 and was immediately successful in selling my work and winning awards. I have since made the transition to working fulltime as a Plein Air artist."
