I'm a painter living in Highland Park, New Jersey. I attended the Kansas City Art Institute and Rutgers University Mason Gross School of the Arts, where I received my MFA. I was a participant of PS1. My paintings are in the collection of the Chase Manhattan Bank and The Burchfield-Penny Art Center among others. View Resume​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Artist Statement:
I consider myself an intuitive painter. Anchored in both memory and intuition, my work explores an instinctive and spontaneous approach to painting. My current works are all representations of flowers. With a fixed subject matter, I am liberated from distraction and can focus on representation in its purest form.
The genre of flower painting began with a bouquet painted by Jan Bruegel the Elder in the 1300s and continues to this day. It is this legacy and oversaturation within the history of art that creates a certain ambivalence or distance towards the subject, enabling me to explore the full dimensions of representation through an intuitive approach.
