At a young age, I was taught to see the world for its positive and negative space. Look at an object itself and then look outside of that object at the space supporting it. I sketched every day into high school where I received a scholarship to attend Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, MA. I received an outstanding education at Montserrat in the foundation studies of fine art. At the time, I only saw the positive-the objects in front of me and yearned for the negative, which I observed, was stronger than anything the eye can see. My art is greatly influenced by 18th and 19th century art in the Romanticism and Pre-Raphaelite styles and has a whimsical, mythical twist. I currently reside in Baltimore, MD-painting on productive days and a receptor all others.
