To create and push the boundaries of my own work in a space that welcomes guests for conversation.
I opened Painted Board Studio in 1993 in Riverside, IL, where I lived at the time, centered around creating custom painted furniture. In 2003 my shop expanded to Madison Street in Forest Park, IL. In 2015, when my husband and I moved to Miller Beach in Gary, IN, Painted Board Studio found it’s way to Lake Street.
Although the focus of Painted Board has historically been on my own art and custom painted furniture, it is time to open the doors a bit wider and offer my studio to others in order to better utilize the space and enrich our community. My hope is to involve local, talented artists with residents and visitors through classes, open studio days, and art parties.
