About Me

I am an artist and educator from Philadelphia whose paintings, public art installations, and community art projects center around participation and everyday visual language. My approach to composition is informed by mid-century formalism and conceptualism. My work has been recognized by the 2017 Americans for the Arts Public Art Network Year in Review for outstanding public art, as well as having been exhibited at numerous art spaces regionally and nationally, including the Crane Arts, Woodmere Art Museum in Philadelphia, Lillstreet Art Center in Chicago, IL, the Delaware Contemporary in Wilmington, DE, and Thomas Hunter Projects in New York, NY.

I have created several notable public art projects including 14 Movements: A Symphony in Color and Words, a mile-long temporary mural installed in downtown Philadelphia during the 2016 Democratic National Convention, Look Long and Look Good, a series of 30 paintings currently installed along Main Street in Manayunk, and Flowering Axes, a mural in the 5th Street Vehicular Tunnel underneath the Ben Franklin Bridge. My work has been collected by The Wharton School at The University of Pennsylvania, Fox School of Business at Temple University, Capital One in Wilmington, DE, and various private collections.
