See my work at the Zhou B Art Center every 3rd Friday!

Born in New York City, NY
Lives and works in Chicago, IL

My paintings explore the random, hectic movements in the day-to-day—one action bumps into another—one thought suddenly leads you to a very different one—one shape leans into the next. We move fast and disconnectedly. Sometimes it adds up to a whole&mdash and sometimes it remains in pieces.

I’m interested in the deceptively simple interplay between colors, shapes and lines on canvas. While my work has an easy air to it, for me the work is actually about every day struggles—the struggle between our daily needs and our greater desires, betweeen keeping track of our keys and trying to exercise, between the desire to create meaning versus accepting some meaninglessness. In the end, I’m also asking when do shapes and forms make “sense”? When does meaning take place”?

My work invites you to find the balance and sense in day-to-day life
