All Art Crimes stories are based on true stories while customized to your agents interest.  In addition to learning art history, various painting and sculpture techniques, your secret agent will also be engaging the relationship between applied linguistics and creative language.


I have created more than 1000 paintings in my lifetime. 825 of them are currently listed on my website.  At the age of 44, I thrive as an artist because I am disciplined and committed to my work. More importantly, I have learned how to foster my relationship to language, both in how my own work perceives language and how words help me  achieve and secure national and state grants to continue my work. Writing is an important part of being an artist.  

Art Crimes, a co-creation of my husband Chris, was developed during the pandemic. My husband and I wanted to develop a project that would bring together our strengths.  It has been so much fun! Chris brings a BA in Journalism from Indiana University School of Journalism and taught high school English for 10 years before transitioning into a software engineer position.  I hold a BFA in Design, initiated my graduate work with New York University in NYC at the (New York University Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development) and completed my Masters in International Business with Schiller International University in Heidelberg, Germany.
