Born in Evanston, Illionis 1975, and, encouraged by my mother, I began drawing at an early age, mostly dinosaurs and animals.

Then in 1982, my father committed suicide and my drawings became much darker and I became obsessed with horror movies, literature, comics.

This led to my interest in special effects and I enrolled in the Industrial Design Technology program at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh after graduating high school.

Somewhat disappointed in the school and recieving news of more traumatic family matters, I dropped out of the program and began focusing more on developing my oil paintings.

When it Rains it Pours

The iconography in the body of my work are reflective of dreams or visions, of which I am interested in creating a sensual, cinematic narrative inspired by nature or my own personal environment.

The female figures are allegorical apparitions used as a vehicle to illuminate a subjective state of emotional response in the viewer.
