About Me


I studied communications and art at Denison University and have been painting for quite a long time. I have only recently started to share my work more widely and continue to progress as a thinker.


I use mostly acrylics on art boards and canvas, and have explored pushing the boundaries within my specific style. I have been influenced by everything from chiaroscuro to color field, from Dali to Rothko.


Emotional connection is the reason why I work in the style I have developed. I want the viewer to find themselves in my paintings and apply their own story. I explore the positive and negative feelings that we all go through...and I want to find a common experience.
