ABOUT  BIO + ARTIST STATEMENT

BIO

 

Born in Reading PA, based in Brooklyn NY.  BFA from Syracuse University. MFA from Brooklyn College, City University of New York. 

My paintings address the loaded intersections, layers, and fragments of daily living, with a particular affection for urban structures, natural systems, human interaction, music, memory, and obsolete media. My murals are conduits to the communities

A few of my favorite things include live music, buying records and CDs, social justice, urban renewal, second lines in New Orleans, NCAA brackets, and The Wire.
