I am a working artist and educator in the mediums of mosaics, painting, drawing and photography. Presently, my concentration is mosaic public art projects and teaching mosaics to Chicago Public School students. In the winter months I work in my large living room where I enjoy my wood burning fireplace and music while I work...my studio is too chilly the first part of the new year. I am from French origins and love art, cooking and my 8 pound long haired dachshud, Bess, who is never far from my side. My home is comfortable, private and interesting yet casual.
