We adore chaos because we love to produce order.
— M. C. Escher
My connection with art and design began at an early age, with weekly classes on Saturday mornings at the Toledo Museum of Art in Toledo, Ohio. The variety of pieces within the collection opened my eyes to differing styles and aesthetic sensitivities around the world. I was also the beneficiary of the tremendous arts curriculum provided by Sylvania Schools and design methodologies from Bowling Green State University and University of Cincinnati—gaining further awareness and experience with art and design.
I continue to create artwork—focusing primarily on acrylic painting and experimental photography—a selection of which is displayed below.
