Rob is a Chicago native who challenges concepts of perception through his artwork. Rob began his practice at a young age, and continued his love of art through his high school and early college experiences. After earning a B.S. in Psychology from Loyola University, Chicago, Rob worked as a media buyer before returning to Loyola University Chicago to earn his M.Ed. in Higher Education Administration. As a college administrator he focused on helping students at risk, and turned to pointillism for positive replenishment. It was not long before he embarked on a career as a professional artist.
