After a few years of down time from proper internet representation, and while mulling over how to best represent my evolving and growing body of work (which has ranged from video and sound to drawings and paintings), I've finally launched a site! My work has streamlined, and with it my ability to tell the story, in words and pictures, of where I am as an artist. Most of the work will be more recent pieces, but I'll also share some earlier projects that capture the essence of my visual vocabulary. Since completing a stint of grad school at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (Art & Technology Studies program), I've been all over the map, including being in a number of bands as the lead singer. Performance has been integral to my creative process, too. But I'm narrowing the focus, and excited to bring my energy back to oil painting. I'll continue to take on other smaller side projects, as my energies are too active to keep to just one thing…This will be the place to join me on my journey. I'm very excited to be sharing my work, and my process, with all of you!
