I am an outsider artist/librarian who has taken one drawing/art class at the Evanston Art Center. I have always liked artists like Picasso, Crumb, Spiegelman, Chagall, and Art Young. I am semi-retired from a library and draw as much as possible. I use pens and ink mostly but I will try charcoal and watercolors soon.
I had an interesting childhood and I am here to tell the story.I show aspects of life that seem off-beat.
Some of my art teachers in Chicago have been: Michelle Kogan,, Jack Lerman, Sonya and Leonid Osseny, Nicholita Hache, Javier Enriquez, Martha Juarez, Ivan Brunetti, Elain O'Sullivan, Michael Abcede, David Gista, Penelope Thrasher, Lisa Carter, Spencer Hutchinson, Kao Ra Zen, Piotr Wolodiewcz, and Marianna Buchwald.
I have had 5 letters published in MAD Magazine from 2010 to 2017(Dec. 2010; Dec., 2011); (April , 2015); (Feb., 2016); (Feb., 2017).
