Welcome!! Thank you for visiting. I am a watercolor artist in Chicago’s historic West Loop. Inspired by my city, daily life, nostalgia, and imagination, I create transportive artworks using the versatility of my favorite medium, watercolors. Original paintings and prints are available online. For a custom painting, I invite you to visit this page for some ideas and to contact me for commissioned artwork
