An artist based in Chicago who loves working with mixed media, photography, and graphic design.
I am a third generation visual artist. (Check out what’s left of my granfather’s work here ) . I am a DePaul University graduate with a unique blend of experience from marketing communications to photography, large scale canvas and mixed media. My core concepts are rooted in color, shape, feeling, lighting, balance, and composition.
Influenced by music, other artists, my dreams, fashion, philosophy, and a vast array of art disciplines, I aim to uphold an Aesthetik that connects people to themselves. To who they are.
I love art that causes you to stop and look for a period of time…time that the images are suspended in. You also become suspended in time with them, appreciating, inspecting, and curiously poking around with your own imagination.
In my work I aim to capture the time in moments. The beauty that surrounds the moments. For me, everything has art in it. How a branch bends, how the clouds move, how a person holds a pen…everything has a moment, a flow, a rhythm, personality. I try to capture that in my work.
My style is always evolving but core concepts are rooted in color, shapes, composition, mood, feeling, lighting. Contrast is a favorite visual tool with sharpness and richness highlighting content.
I take the creative route in processing my work, focusing on people, places, and the world around me.
Everything in this world seems to belong to a narrative and I am just one of the storytellers.
