Growing up, my mom was a kindergarten teacher. So, our household really celebrated that core creative play of identifying and playing with shape, colour, and form. At a certain age, most kids stop finding that so entertaining, but I never did.
Leveraging my academic background in visual arts and professional work experience as a graphic designer for luxury brands, I bring a concept-driven, designer-friendly approach to fine art. 
Thoughtfulness, care, and attention to detail lend themselves well to the clean compositions I create in my painting practice. I welcome opportunities to work with private collectors, art consultants, design firms and galleries for residential and commercial projects.
