Art has been a favorite hobby of mine, whether it was drawing, painting, or visiting art museums. Modern art has appealed to me over other art forms for their shapes, colors and complex patterns. For my whole life I have enjoyed the organization and balance of lines, as seen in maps, floor plans, and even some geometric artwork. These lines have drawn me to pursue math as a career. I have two Associates Degrees in Math and Engineering from Tompkins Cortland Community College in Dryden, NY and am currently pursuing a Bachelors Degree in Electrical Engineering at Stony Brook University.
When I was in high school, I became interested in surrealist and abstract art. My eighth grade English teacher, introduced me to Wassily Kandinsky's paintings which were cluttered with geometric shapes and lines. After that, I've doodled on test papers and notebooks, imitating Kandinsky's patterns , until I formed an artistic style of my own.
In my junior year of college, I ran into Robert Motherwell's Open Series, which were solemn empty images of a few lines. I thought these minimalist paintings were so cool that I decided to take my art into a minimalist direction. It was also at this same time that I decided to finally start showing my artwork in exhibitions and shows. Since March 2016, I have shown in Cortland, Binghamton, Norwich and Groton. I've had an article written about my works on PressConnects of Binghamton and I have won an honorable mention at the Groton Art Show 2016.
