I had three works accepted into this year's Richeson75 Figure/Portrait Competition. I decided to send my drawing, Portrait of Something Lost, to the exhibition in Wisconsin, making this work eligible for an award. The show was judged by William Schneider and my drawing took second place in the Other Media category.
Born in Boston, I traveled to Italy in 2008 to study drawing in Florence. Upon returning to the States in April of 2009, I enrolled at the Academy of Realist Art, Boston where I currently teach figure drawing and painting.
I am a graduate of Walnut Hill School for the Arts with a major in painting and hold a BFA in painting from Carnegie Mellon.
