About the Artist
My work is hugely inspired by the time I spent working as a bike messenger in Boston while attending Massachusetts College of Art and Design, where I received a Bachelor of Arts in Printmaking in 2011. The highly detailed drawings and maps I have been dreaming up for the past ten years reflect my fascination with the nuances that make these places real: littered back alleys, run-down storefronts, rooftops covered with air conditioners and antennas. By concentrating these details in my illustrations, I’m inviting viewers to take a closer look at the things they may otherwise pass by on their walk around the block or commute to work.
I am an established illustrator, muralist, and educator living and working in the Greater Boston Area. I have created original artworks for clients including Uber’s Corporate Offices, Sasaki Architects, Superb Bicycle, Backlash Brewing. I am also a seasoned educator, having taught illustration as an artist in residence turned faculty at the New Art Center in Newton, MA; as artist in residence at Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, MA; as a drawing teacher at the Francine Delany New School in Asheville, NC. Most recently, I led an interactive mural residency with 120 students at the Riverbend Montessori School in Natick, MA.
My exhibitions include PARACOSMOS Solo fine art show and mural installation at UnchARTed Gallery in Lowell, MA; PARACOSMOS II commissioned installation at Sasaki Architects in Watertown, MA; URBAN SCRAWL solo fine art show and mural installation at Lincoln Arts in Waltham, MA; Blanc Gallery grand opening art exhibition in Cambridge, MA. My commissions include Newton’s Artful Piano Project in Newton, MA; Brookline Teen Center main lobby; Three Squares New England’s 2016 and 2018 Ride for Food Fundraiser illustration and design of cycling jersey, windbreaker, and bib shorts; and Backlash Brewing Stomping Grounds series beer cans, among many others.
