More of My Story
I kicked off 2005 with a booth space at The Annual Cubs Convention.  I Exhibited "Lake Bound" in the 2115 Bowery Gallery National Competition, NY and was Published for the first time in American Art Collector, a juried competition of new work.  My first large scale Giclee Exhibit was at the 2005 One of a Kind Show.  I was picked up as a feature artist with Art Encounter, a Vegas gallery.  For the Chicago Art Open that year I Exhibited "Memories".  I also became a Member of the Illinois Artisans Shops, administered by the Illinois State Museum, selling giclees through the Artisan Shop in downtown Chicago.  In October, kicking off Chicago Artists Month, I walked in Art Walks Chicago.  From 2005-2007 I had a dozen pieces hanging in a group show at Amata,  located on the 22nd floor, 150 North Michigan Ave.  The last three months of the year I had a One Person Exhibit hanging at Jane's in Wicker Park.

I hosted my first One Person Show, Old Town Art Gallery, in 2006.  I hung Library Exhibits at Chicago's Edgebrook and John Merio branches.  I hit the Art Fair circuit hard during the summer of '06 taking my signed limited edition canvas giclees on the road for 14 shows.  I hooked up with Macy's Look Gallery on State Street.  I continued with Look into 2007.  In early October, A gallery owner and fellow Breakfast Grouper, included me in a Four Person Show titled "City Life" at Stolen Buick Studio.  I wound down 2006 with an Open Studio as part of Fulton Arts Walk '06.

January 2007 I participated in a group show "Art House '07".  A Collaboration of Art and Architecture.  Fate and family prompted my move from Chicago to Vegas.  Soon after arriving in Vegas I was in a Group Show at Contemporary Arts Collective, LV and exhibited as part of First Friday's art scene.

In 2008 I stuck close to Vegas, doing four pieces inspired by my move.  From 2002 thru 2008 I had a steady stream of commissions on the easel.  Each piece was customized with the Collectors favorite buildings, restaurants, street signs, family & pets... personalized art.  I had work hanging thru 2009 at the Canyon Ranch Artwalk located in The Venetian.  I exhibited at Retro Vegas and with the Vegas Artist Guild.

   My current creative obsession involves working in photoshop, the computer is my new easel.
