MURALS www.chicagomuralpainting.com

I have painted a wide assortment of murals nationwide. I offer the highest quality of workmanship, efficiency, and flexibility-qualities that allow me to work closely with my clients.  I assure them of not only spectacular results, but timely and cost effective work as well. My objective is to transform a mediocre space to a fantasy filled room, wall, or space. All mural projects are sight specific and are a collaboration of shared ideas with my clients and myself.

CARICATURES www.digitalcaricatureartist.com


I began drawing caricatures professionally at age 16. In addition to private parties, I entertain as a caricaturist at corporate events, trade shows, cruises, nursing homes, children’s hospitals, and charity functions. Engaging, personable, and witty, I am quick to strike up a rapport with my subjects putting them at ease. The results allow for a fun-filled, often times hilarious experience for all.  As a result of my many years in this profession, and multifaceted artistic skill, I am considered one of the top caricaturists in the Chicago area.

SCULPTURE http://www.artips.com/giant-food-sculptures/giant-food-sculptures-ellen-lustig.html

I studied art formally at several art schools and universities across the country. I have exhibited my paintings and sculptures in top national galleries and group museum shows. For the first 9 years after college, I created giant food sculptures that were sold in galleries across the country.

PAINTINGS www.twistedtoypaintings.com

I am working on a series of my own oil paintings some of which can be viewed on my website.

PUPPET MAKING www.makemeapuppet.com

Currently, I have a puppet making business where I create custom caricature hand puppets from photos.

Caring Arts

I also work part time at Children’s Memorial Hospital providing healing arts and craft projects for oncology outpatients and their families sponsored by Caring Arts of Chicago.
