About Me

For as long as I can remember, I have been working with my hands to create art. From my chalkboard toy chest to dozens of sketchbooks to digital creations, there hasn't been a time in my life when I wasn't using my creativity to make the world a more beautiful place. After attending Coe College in Cedar Rapids for only two years, taking every studio class available and circumventing the requisits of a generalized education, I struck out to do what I love most - create works of art.

This collection of works is a brief example of what I have been up to for the last 7 years. I've made it my modus operendi to blend classical training in realism with a mind free of boundaries to contain single compositions in a realm of expression that speaks from the depths of my being. Whether I'm drawing, playing guitar or writing poetry, there is an incessent stream of creative interpretation running through my mind, fueling a yearning to create that has never ceased.

I hope this brief collection gives you a sense of the breadth of my skills as I am available for short and long-term freelance contracts. Please contact me for more information or for my formal resume.
