About the Maker
I am a Cleveland local artist, illustrator, and wood carver, and my business was established in 2005. I have been an acrylic and calligraphy instructor for over 15 years as well as a member of The Great Lakes Wood Carvers.
I am a member of the NOAPS (National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society) and a National Park artist and contributor contributing 4 original oil and acrylic paintings to raise money for our National Parks. I had an original pen and ink of the Fulton Rd Bridge that was hanging in the primate building of the Cleveland MetroParks Zoo which was later auctioned off and an original pencil drawing of the Riverside Cemetery Gatehouse that is hanging in the gatehouse building. That was donated to the gatehouse, which is a registered historical landmark in Cleveland.
I am the Parma Area Fine Arts President. PAFAC is a non-profit art organization that promotes art and art education in Parma and the surrounding areas. We offer free art classes to the community that is funded in part by a grant from Cuyahoga Arts and Culture.
