I myself have written innumerable essays - as a successfully matriculated student to Brown University and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, as a Fulbright Scholar, and as a recipient of numerous highly competitive grants, fellowships, and artist residencies.
Drawing IS thinking. Our drawings show us what our souls want. I love bringing the joy of perceptive and imagined spaces to everyone. I have been drawing for thirty years and I most enjoy working with pen and ink. My own drawings exhibit in museums, galleries, newspapers, magazines... I draw on paper and I draw for animated films. I studied drawing at RISD, Brown University, and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

When working with students I help them move past initial cliches and dig deeply into their individuated imaginations.

I push and push until they find their best and most honest voice - one that expresses their most authentic thoughts in the most exquisite language possible.
