About the artist

My work in the studio always returns to the old masters, as I strive to unite timeless techniques with my own interests and new stories. As a child I was immersed in the process of translating fantastical worlds and imaginative concepts to paper. While the imaginative, even the grotesque, still has a place in my work--I have learned to appreciate the depth and narratives in people and objects around me. I now focus on revealing what is captivating about those people and objects, composing them in a way that investigates their depths. 

 

After studying painting at the College of the Holy Cross in Massachusetts, I have been living and working in Baltimore, immersing myself in the rarely-taught techniques of the old masters at the Schuler School of Fine Arts.
