Artist Statement
Currently based in Chicago, (and sometimes Lake Worth, FL), I paint, draw, and freelance graphic design. 
My art does not pretend to have answers, rather, it encourages you to ask questions and pursue what captivates you. Whether painting or designing, I’m considering personal yet universal experiences, such as seeing the ocean for the first time or exploring a foggy creek. These are the moments that make us feel alive and allow us to better relate with the world. My passion for creating art is an echo is of these thrilling experiences. By molding my materials in unique ways, I evoke curiosity; with vibrant powerful colors, I engage emotion; and fantastical choices engage inquiry through my work. Wielding the disciplines of painting and graphic design as my mode for investigation, my work retains a childlike wonder that all people can connect with. Working based on my own curiosity, I inspire inquiry and reflection through my work.
