I am an artist/painter based in Los Angeles, California. I was raised in Chicago, Illinois and involved in the arts from a very young age. I studied theatre at the Performing Arts Center, Barat College of DePaul University and hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in production stage management and costume design. I was fortunate enough to work with such theatre companies as Steppenwolf Theatre, Goodman Theatre, Chicago Theatre and Phoenix Theatre. Throughout my years in school, I studied painting and art history in addition to architecture and interior design when I moved to Los Angeles at UCLA. Art has always been a huge influence in my life - influenced by impressionism, post-impressionism and abstract expressionism.
I specialize in painting landscapes, portraits, figures and abstract art. I typically explore my ideas on canvas using both traditional and innovative techniques. My background in the performing arts influences the themes of my paintings, which change depending on the mood or season I find myself in. I always learn something new about myself from each of my paintings which motivates me as an artist and brings me great joy. I am represented by Agora Gallery New York, New York, Plogix Gallery London, England and a member of the Los Angeles Art Association.
