Born in Illinois, I was lucky enough to be a short train ride away from The Art Institute of Chicago. I can still remember my first field trips in grade school to that very museum. From a young age, I have enjoyed art. Though my mediums have changed throughout the years as I graduated from my childhood crayons to the acrylics I enjoy painting with in adulthood, my passion has yet to cease. It has even transferred to more commercial media art using Adobe Creative Suite.
