I was raised in Chicago by parents who emigrated from Canada and Argentina. All my life, making art has always given me roots and a sense of belonging. In my 20's I became a professional architect and dedicated myself to that career and building a firm. Along the way I spent a decade in Germany practicing architecture and establishing my family before we returned to the U.S. In architecture, it takes the efforts of an extensive, multi-disciplinary team to realize any building. Ultimately the idea is far removed from the expression. When I make art it is invigorating because my ideas move straight from my mind through my hands and the energy is right there and tangible. My figurative work has evolved from two into three dimensions and I invite you to follow along - the excitement is in the evolution of the work itself.
