I am a Chicago boy. Grew up there, went to school there, got married there. I transplanted to lovely Portland, Oregon in 2017 and I’m still adjusting my midwest ethos to the new digs. And loving it. I cut my teeth in old school art departments doing key line and paste-up, in printshops pulling prints, grinding stones and polishing copper plates, on delivery routes, painting houses, teaching kids and adults of many stripes, freelancing, muraling, exhibiting, and fixing broken art.
I've worked hard for 25 years to develop a deft, varied, and disciplined hand and I pride myself being able to be a chameleon while sticking to my own guns.
My fine art can be found here.
