A few years back at one of my New York exhibitions, a patron came up to me and complimented my work and stated, “Your work is so in your face and I like that”. Well, I thought about that statement and decided that it sort of sums up how I feel about my own work. I find myself drawn more to the urban atmosphere when it comes to art. I like the challenge of creating pieces that are street worthy yet can feel at home in any setting. I’m not a street painter by any means but I do get ideas, mood, and inspiration from what I see in and around the urban landscape. I like to reuse things I find. I’ve painted on old doors, cardboard, wood, bubble plastic, etc.

Originally from New Jersey, I’ve lived around the world, most recently in Spain. Inspiration comes from all over from late cubism to art brut. I consider myself more of an international artist, although my work is deeply rooted in the U.S. Presently living in the Washington DC area.
