Welcome, and thank you for visiting my site. I'm an art historian specializing in 19th-century French painting and 20th-century Surrealism.  Eventually I hope to become a museum curator or gallery director and write art history books and articles. I enjoy creating art in my spare time, especially painting and collage with found objects. Influential artists upon my art, writing, and research projects includee: Victor Hugo, the Symbolist poets, the Pre-Raphaelities; Symbolist and Surrealist painters such as Odilon Redon, Max Ernst, Rene Magritte, and Gustave Moreau.
