About me
I like to draw and paint the human figure. I try to make my drawings feel fresh and contemporary in a time when drawing has largely been replaced by photography and computer graphics as a form of visual communication.

I graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with BFA in Communication Arts & Design, with a concentration in digital imaging and a minor in painting & printmaking. I also took several importance classes (literary analysis, the self and other in art, critical issues in media) that greatly influenced my world view by introducing to me to semiotics, postmodernism, post-colonialism and identity politics. I also did a lot of figure drawing.

I recently finished my MA in illustration from the Fashion Institute of Technology where I wrote my master's thesis on fashion illustration. The style and grace of golden era and 70s fashion illustration has greatly influenced my present style of drawing. Other big influences are Calder, Schiele, David Choe, Klimt, Giacometti, and Modigliani to name a few.

In addition to art and illustration, influences such as cartoons, comic books, photography and computer graphics inform how I work.

Intellectually, Karl Marx's Capital and Pierre Bourdieu's Distinction have been very important to my development since undergrad.

Currently, I make drawings, artzines and artbooks as well as silkscreens. I have exhibited and sold my work in galleries and conventions in Richmond, Virginia and New York City.

My goals are to continue to refine my art as I build my reputation as an artist. Through Model Mayhem, I hope to meet people interested in modeling for me and share my work with those who would appreciate it.
