University of Connecticut, 2008, MA
University of Connecticut, 2006, MFA
UC Davis, 2004, BA


In high school I studied the basics of art with Oakland-based artist Charlie Milgrim and mostly followed the routine of the classroom assignments. I went on to earn a BA in studio art and Italian from UC Davis where I studied with artists Tom Bills, Mike Henderson, David Hollowell, and Gina Werfel. For graduate school, I went to the University of Connecticut and earned a MFA in printmaking and MA in Italian literature. 

My studio practice for the past couple of years has been primarily concerned with abstraction. I have been drawn to roadways, maps, and grids and have been generally fascinated with the order of such man-made systems, especially when on the grander scale. Several times I have driven across the United States and I have been captivated by the seemingly endless highways, where the lines can appear to drift into the horizon.

Ultimately I always find that the colors and forms present in my paintings are drawn from my immediate experience and environment.
