In 1994, my career as an artist started at Columbus College of Art and Design, in Columbus Ohio. There I received my BFA in Painting with a strong focus in their conceptual studies. After graduating from undergrad, I then went immediately and pursued my advance education at Northwestern University in Chicago, Il. There I received my MFA in 2001. I then stayed in Chicago until 2005, where I was part of a young and thriving group of new and up and coming new artists. I participated in many alternative showings and several traditional gallery shows... both being solo and group shows. Since leaving Chicago in 2005 for new experiences, I have traveled back and forth and lived in Los Angeles, Asheville and Knoxville. In all these travels, the one thing I continue to do is paint, draw and create. Within the act of creating, telling a good story is what I am about... I just do it through paint and the pen.
