There are two ways of absorbing the aesthetics that make up biology: exploring it through art and analyzing it through science. Within my processes of visual communication, I aim to demonstrate the relevance of a symbolic relationship between art and science. Although these are two different spaces my work exists simultaneously within empirical science and fine art.

 Through processes that include drawing and illustration, paintings, photography and sculpture, a spectrum of visual communication appears which can be defined as illustrative. I am interested in exploiting the use of material to examine themes of morphology, ecology, anthropology, and how traversing nature through unconventional mediums can broaden its comprehension.

 

EDUCATION

I received my Bachelor of Fine Art from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. I also studied human anatomy at the Vitruvian Fine Art Studio, and I studied glass blowing at Oxbow Art School and Residency.

Andy Warhol once said: "Don't think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it's good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art."
