- About -

I am based in Salt Lake City, UT where my art endeavors began at a young age. I studied with various professional artists at the Hein Academy of Art and the Bridge Academy of Art for four years before graduating from the University of Utah with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 2015. As a full-time studio artist, I enjoy painting in my studio and traveling for art shows around the country. My artwork has shown in several galleries notably the MAD Gallery in Manhattan, NY, the Mena Art Gallery in Mena, AK, Springville Museum of Art in Springville, UT and the Alderwood Fine Art Gallery in SLC, UT. My artwork has also populated many private collections around the United States ranging from Puerto Rico to Los Angeles. Although I have experience with several different styles of painting including murals, street art, set design, and landscape, the emotional draw of the figure continues to captivate my attention. The work heavily portrays my classical training at the art academies as well as a gestural expressive application of paint. Evidence of my love and passion for art is apparent in each and every one of my artworks.
