About Me

Hi World!


I have loved oil painting since elementary school. I trained at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. I have also recently trained at Ravenswood Atlier with Matt Almy in Chicago. My favorite subjects are landscapes, flowers, people. I also had a period of doing abstract paintings and resin. 

I am originally from St. Louis, currently pursuing further training in Chicago, and live with my family in Springfield, IL where I have my own studio.

My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.


Works reveal inspiration from great masters such as Manet and Caravaggio, and contemporary artists Matt Almy, Magdalena Almy, and Bruno Surdo.


My preferred technique includes using oil paint on canvas as the old masters did. Occasionally I use oil on board or masonite. More rarely I do an acrylic paint piece.  I have also experimented using epoxy resin to add a uniqueness to some works.
