Born in Northwest Indiana, I attended The School of the Art Institute of Chicago from 1997 - 2000 and finished my undergraduate degree in Interdisciplinary Art at Herron School of Art and Design in 2007. I continued with my academic career at Maine College of Art and acquired an MFA in 2009. Since then, I have retained a spirited studio practice and a distinctive signature thread throughout my entire body of work. Each piece is assembled with thoughtfulness and delicate care.
My work is informed by an interest in architecture as a living organism, the evolution of personal and objective narrative in dwellings and a playfulness in composition. In each piece, there are equal parts sincerity, provocation and dry humor. I have tried to categorize the thread within each work and the category I drew up was Intuitional Abstract. My line and palette are driven with sentimentality. Tapping into emotion, nostalgia, and capturing a heightened occasions. My paintings and prints become a souvenir and my way of offering those two dimensional and extraordinary moments.
