I'm a artist who began his practice in stained glass and evolved into painting and drawing. It was a decision made on the road due to my itinerant life as a Jesuit. On the last three years I have been at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago Post Baccalaureate and MFA programs in the painting and drawing department.
