Fine Art / Graphic Design / Art Direction

I have been creating for as long as I can remember. From making found-object sculptures out of scrap metal and fasteners found on the floor of my father’s carpentry shop, to large-scale paintings at juried shows and everything in between. I grew up in the Midwest and having spent my formative years in a vast suburban landscape and had to make my own beauty.

In the pursuit of art and inspiration, I developed my craft in many locations and through many facets. I have lived in St. Louis, San Francisco and found my true home in downtown Manhattan. These experiences have helped to inform my art. 

I worked professionally in design for nearly a decade, as well as a continued pursuit of both commissioned works and gallery exhibitions. Now, more than ever, my work is informed by my experiences as a parent and an artist in the time of pandemic. My illustrative and painting work have been the most fulfilling and therapeutic, given the current climate.
