I began drawing when I was a kid as a both a means of escape and because I was told I was good at it. I received a BFA from the American Academy of Art with a Multimedia major. Shortly after graduation, I took a painting studio space in Harvard, IL in a building now known as Starline Studios and Gallery, which I played an early role in developing. I sell my original as well as commissioned work. Starline still serves as my home base though over the years I have embarked on multiple art tours and residencies.
