I grew up in a large town in the small state of Rhode Island and currently reside in New York City, where I work as an artist & illustrator.
The main themes that reside in my work are superficiality, sexuality, gender, and my perceptions of beauty. I like bright colors and bold design. I enjoy simplicity and am very inspired by fashion photography. I ask myself a lot of questions, and painting is my attempt at an answer.
My work has received recognition from publications such as American Illustration, Society of Illustrators, and 3x3 Magazine, as well as being shown in galleries in solo and group shows around New York City. Some clients that I have had the privilege of working with include The New Yorker, WWD, Prudential, and Joe Fresh.
