|I was born in Columbus Ohio and received a Bachelor’s Degree in Studio ART from New York University in 2003. In addition, I have taken painting and illustration classes at Parsons School of Design’s Pre-college Summer Intensive Study program and Pratt Institute’s School of Continuing Education.
My artwork is inspired by New York City’s constant evolution, collective memory, imaginary picture and ultimate essence. I have recently begun to integrate, layer and manipulate my traditional practice of painting and drawing with photography, collage, digital technology, projection and installation. My creative process involves a series repetitive re-interpretations; extending the dialog from one artistic medium and making it available for further elaboration in new media, context and experience. The quixotic reconstruction of the city paints a visual soundtrack for the intangible experience of its changing space.
I'm currently living in Brooklyn, New York and working on a new series of oil paintings that I plan on completing and exhibiting in 2016.
I'm also the Digital Production Designer at The New School!
