I was raised in Evanston IL and attended Idaho State University where I received a BA in art and design. I spent three years doing graduate work at Howard University in Washington DC. I came back to Chicago after serving as an ad intern for the Chevrolet account in Detroit. Since then, I've held several art related positions in the Cook and Lake County areas. I've been an active member of the Lake County and Glenview Art Leagues. I'm also represented by Lemon Street Gallery-Kenosha WI and Blue Moon Gallery-Grayslake IL.
