THE OLIVER, assemblage, 2013, detail view



I am Chicago based artist and painter. Circus sideshows, outdated mechanical objects, and sentimental souvenirs from past eras 

are favorite subjects. I've shown locally at many venues including 

The Harold Washington Library, Chicago Cultural Center, and the 

Bridgeport Arts Center. Nationally, from Washington DC's outsider gallery

Art Enables to The Venice Beach Freak Show in Los Angeles.

In 2017, I spent a month as a resident artist at NES, in Skagastrond,

Iceland, a country I'd recommend visiting for it's inspiring beauty.

In 2016, I was part of K-Fest in Killorglin, Co. Kerry, Ireland.

It's a wonderful festival where the entire town turns it's abandoned

spaces into art galleries, theater, poetry, and music venues. 


I make my living as a union scenic painter for film, television, opera,

theater, museum, and commercial spaces. A biology major in college

with an eye on zoology, I took a theater stagecraft class as a creative

outlet. I was much better with a paint brush than a table of elements.

My love of animals still can be seen in much of my personal work.


Have a look around my galleries, and don't hesitate to contact me. 

Photos and new information are added periodically.

Thanks for stopping by, next time we shall have tea.
