This painting was inspired by the light and shadows I observed in the afternoon under the el train tracks in downtown Chicago.

My paintings are inspired by my environment. Each element in my compositions stem from something I have seen during my everyday life. I believe daily routine can yield fascinating visual sights. I describe my work as representational abstractions that combine urban structure with peeks of organic moments. I see light and color as a means to both emphasize and unify parts of my compositions. I grew up in central Pennsylvania and attended Millersville University. I received a BFA and BS in Art Education in 2005. I taught public school for six years in southern Maryland and in the midst of that completed my graduate program at Savannah College of Art and Design. I received my MFA in painting in 2012. I moved to Chicago in 2013 where I work as a graphic designer and continue my practice as an abstract painter.
