I am currently an MFA painter at IUP, finishing up my graduate studies. I was born and raised in Baltimore, MD, where I earned my BA in painting and drawing from Towson University. My artistic influences include Ian Francis, Cy Twombly, Jean Dubuffet, and anything that strikes my fancy. I am a firm believer in karma and the law of attraction. It would be in my greatest interest to continue to let my artwork take me places, as opposed to the antithesis.
My work loosely revolves around ecological influences that impact child development. That said, I am heavily inspired by children, more specifically my nieces and nephews, from whom I gather natural research.
I love that a bunch of different artists are swimming in the same pool that is RAW.
Good people, good music, and new experiences make my world go round. Wait, good food is essential. Add that to the list.
