welcome to www.paintingbystar.com
It is a pleasure to introduce my work to the public through my website. Compiling and organizing years of work and evolving styles is an ongoing challenge, but one that I have grown to enjoy as I have eased into the 21st Century, much slower than many artists I must admit... I have two websites for your viewing pleasure, www.paintingbystar.com and www.teachingbystar.com, where I have my Education Portfolio and history as a Chicago muralist posted. In addition, you can read my Blog posts and keep up with my career as a Teaching Artist. My future plans include finding a job as an Art Teacher, since I just finished my Art Teacher Certification at Northeastern IL University, finish the oil paintings in my studio and post them online, market myself and land a gallery to represent me, and continue showing my work locally with friends, colleagues, non for profit arts organizations, pop up art galleries and community exhibits. I am an avid traveler and would like to go an a SCUBA diving trip soon, revisit NYC and the amazing art scene there, plan a summer trip to Spain to study the Spanish Masters and develop my interests in bird watching, gardening, swimming, illustration and printmaking.
