I am a figurative artist working with the narrative and abstraction. My work focuses on the process of drawing and painting, having a sense of
immediacy and depicting an honest reaction to the subject matter.

I am interested in exploring relationships, allegories, and ambiguities of the human condition. My intention is to create subjective narratives that
evoke an emotional response and develop a dialogue between the art and the viewer.

I attended Syracuse University in New York for graduate studies in painting, and have a BFA in Painting from the Minneapolis College of Art and
Design in Minnesota. I work full time in my studio located in Minneapolis and am very active in the arts community.
