Raised in West Chicago. Ruth Dieter was my great grandmother and Dr.Dorothy Lynch, my aunt. I am self taught at drawing, & painting. I started selling when a lady wanted the large rock I painted flowers on and posted on facebook. Then St. Charles Place restaurant replaced their roof & were throwing away the cedar shingles. I painted all kinds of different things & everything sold quickly. Now I post on facebook & word of mouth. I also take special requests from portraits to flowers etc… I paint on anything!
