I am a graphic artist who works in multiple disciplines including; illustration, graphic design, fine art, and print production. I graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago with a BFA in Industrial Design. My infatuation with art began as a kid staring at album covers and tracing comic book characters. Frustration was a big part of my art-making experience because the end result was never what I envisioned. I’ve come to realize the unexpected surprises that frustrated me as a kid are now the most exciting aspect of art making. Making art is a balancing act. The internal struggle versus the outside reality. Creative force versus destructive urge. Control and chaos. That search for compromise is what keeps the journey going.
