I am a full-time studio artist based in Chicago. My work is exhibited internationally and part of many public and private collections. I received a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and an MFA from the University of Chicago. I have taught at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Lake Forest College, and for the Associated Colleges of the Midwest's Chicago Arts Program. I have been awarded grants by the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and the Illinois Arts Council, and have presented my work at the Art Institute of Chicago Artists Connect Lecture Series. Kingston, New York and my home town of Indianapolis, Indiana feature my work in their city public art installations. I am represented by Kathryn Markel Fine Arts in New York.
