I'm an award-winning Chicago-based art writer, freelance journalist, and author. I've been a 25-year contributor to publications such as the Chicago Reader and Public Art Review. I'm a five-time Peter Lisagor Award for Exemplary Journalism finalist in the arts reporting (non-daily) category, Chicago Headline Club (SPJ chapter), 1998-2012, for long-form investigative stories in the Reader; I won First Place, arts feature, at the AAN's Alternative Newsweekly Awards, 2001. My articles have also appeared in dozens of art/culture publications, general-interest and regional magazines, as well as newspapers and weeklies. I was awarded a Creative Capital/Warhol Foundation Art Writers Grant in 2012, and received the inaugural Rabkin Foundation Visual Arts Journalism Award in 2017. I've authored or co-authored five books on public art and murals.
