As an artist, I have been drawing portraits for over 20 years, but over the past 12 years have truly found a passion for rendering works celebrating the profession of firefighting. My goal and passion for each work of art is to make it so incredibly life-like that you can feel the energy of the subject.
My work can be seen on NBC's TV show "Chicago Fire." Please look for my prints "Waiting for the Call," "Axe," and "Attack" in the living and sleeping quarters set near the locker room. In addition, my firefighter artwork has recently been published in "Art Journey: Portraits" and featured in "Colored Pencil Magazine."
I am married to a career firefighter and together we have a son and a daughter. Because of my husband, my mother, who repairs turn-out gear for firefighters all across the country (www.fixturnout.com) and an Uncle, who was fire chief for many years in Ft. Wayne, Indiana, I have been associated with the profession of firefighting most of my life.
Please view the artwork and feel free to contact me with any questions that you might have. Thank you so much and I look forward to talking to you soon!
