Born in Chicago. Took to the pencil when I was a itty-bitty carbon life form. I have no choice in arting. It's something I must do. Live with a 15 year old cat named Ch'i.
About My Art:
I've always considered myself as one who draws, no matter the media I use.
An obsession with line, colour, light, and the quiet simplicity of their subtleties is what drives my arting. I search for the perfect surface and the perfect mark to accomplish it. Layering of colours and marks enable the surface to emerge as a living thing. Simply said: I make marks.
Studied painting & drawing for 5 years at Harper College (a 2 year school). Affiliated with Murphy Hill Gallery in Chicago. Next scheduled exhibition in April 2010.
My tastes in music are expansive. From Chinese erhu to Osamu Kitajima. Perry Como to the Sex Pistols. Stravinsky to Lene Lovich. Joan Baez to Trio.
Chinese historical epics & wire-fu. Marx Brothers & Japanese Pulp.
Alberto Giacometti, Hung Liu, Otto Mueller. Rembrandt. Picasso.
