I am a visual artist and freelance designer focused on multiple creative paths including painting, illustration, web design, graphic design and Identity Design. Based in the rolling hillsides of Northwest Illinois, I possess a Bachelor of Arts degree from Northern Illinois University and 10+ years of design and marketing experience. Please feel free to contact me regarding any of the services I offer.
My work explores the emotional connection people have to a landscape by attempting to elicit those reactions through the creation of an, often times, non-representational image. I paint the emotion of a place and the connection felt, thus inviting the viewer to have their own emotional reaction with an object that may or may not be the place that they're thinking of.
