I am a painter and illustrator based in Chicago, Illinois. My work explores nature, psychology, occult and classical symbolism, science fiction and fantasy pulp imagery, American pop culture ephemera and semi-autobiographical accounts of my experiences. I work in bold and vibrant lines, colors and vivid detail. Furthermore, my work explores the use of art as a therapeutic tool for healing and growth, lending itself to my training in art therapy and in the mental health and psychology fields. Outside of my art practice, I have worked extensively with children and adults with developmental disabilities and mental health issues.
