I am an artist based in Chicago, IL, whose work includes sculpture, paintings, installations and more. My work has appeared in various exhibitions and shows. Contact me to inquire about my work, or to commission a specific piece.
I work to reach that magic place I knew as a child, where “reality” disappears, and all things are possible.
My work is a way of dealing with life and a way of finding out who I am. To quote Kurt Vonnegut “I make art to experience becoming – to find out what’s inside me – to make my soul grow.” Each piece tells me more about myself. It’s a more honest statement about who I am and my relationship to the world than I can make in any other way. Whether I’m working with paint, pencil or found materials, I push the envelope, look for the bigger picture or the smaller picture, renewal or death. Currently I’m working with cardboard, which I find in the alleys of Chicago particularly now in the time of the pandemic.
Being an artist for me is a process of lifelong learning, you are never done. Each piece is perpetual renewal; it is always for the first time.
