Statement

Born in the suburbs of Chicago, I lived for most of my childhood in a tiny, one-bedroom apartment with my mother, father and younger sister.  From my father, an artist and writer who never had the means of going to college, I learned the basics-- not only the how-to, but also the way of finding beauty in the ordinary and the simplicities of life.  From my mother I learned how to make the best out of any situation as well as the joy that can be found in patience and craftsmanship.  My sister has taught me how to laugh at life and celebrate the things that have shaped who we have become.  My entire family relies on love and humor to get through tough times, which has been a continued inspiration.  I feel this is evident in my work, in addition to the unavoidable voyeuristic nature of art and the combination of real and surreal that creates a delicate balance in our day-to-day lives.  I strive to create a body of work that is, at once, both beautiful and unconventional, with a high level of craftsmanship and love for the medium.
