To enrich the cultural landscape of Lemont by fostering the production and appreciation of the arts.
I have a passion for life and creativity. I enjoy the imaginative process and the intricacies of what can be done with light and pigment. I have a bachelors degree in anthropology and a masters degree in archaeology. My current work is as an apothecary creator (creating natural bath and body that are vegan and vegetarian friendly) for my own company called Red Lemon.
I have been a photographer and a model from an early age. I was trained by my parents on how to use the camera, and more importantly, how to see. As a child, I was an avid doodler and sketcher and took art classes to explore more mediums. I continued my art education at Northern Illinois University by taking art classes alongside the classes for my major.
I love to get my hands dirty and I love to create. My favorite mediums outside of photography are airbrush, oil pastes, and simple pen and paper for that constant itch to doodle and create.
I have won awards for my photography and other art. I am a resident of Lemont and a member of the Lemont Artists Guild.
