based in milwaukee, i'm a cheese-eating, beer-

drinking and overall working-class kind of artist.

I received my BFA from the Peck School of the Arts

at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee.

It was here that I found painting to be my medium

of choice, at first oil on canvas, but now primarily

acrylic on wood.

local to international, my work has been exhibited

in a variety of galleries, venues and publications;

It showcases themes of an individual raised on

Saturday Morning Cartoons, inspired by the day

to day and grounded in traditional painting

and printmaking techniques.

Sometimes I find my surfaces in resale shops and

sometimes on the curb. Discarded doors and drawers become the settings to my stories and

live on to inspire a few more of their own...

And to be honest, it’s an affordable way for me to keep making artwork that happens to

prevent a few things from being thrown away.

As an artist, I focus on narrative. My goal is to advance and legitimize concepts of visual storytelling by making narratives accessible.

The visuals I create need to be complex enough to inspire intrigue, while remaining tangible;

they need to build the ego of the audience while remaining humble themselves;

and they have to be the envy of the snobbish while being affordable to the masses.

The yarns I spin are for all. They are there in an attempt to interweave audiences with a smile

and illustrate the importance of art in our everyday lives.
