Born in Chicago, Illinois, I grew up in her west suburbs surrounded by a variety of cultures and diversity. Along the way, art found me.
I established the Kyrie Gallery in 2004 to showcase my work and create a place for art in my rural area of Pennsylvania, home since 1991. The Kyrie Gallery motto is "Art for Life" and my goal has been to produce work that touches lives and makes connections.
This is my passion and great joy - who I believe I was designed to be.
Largely self-taught, I have had the great benefit of many wonderful encounters with art friends and colleagues who have shared concepts, ideas and techniques. I have grown over my years as an artist through each one.
