I work with contrasting hard and soft shapes and geometric patterns; each sharp and meticulous mark hovers on soft fields of color. Nothing is preplanned or sketched out; the process is very much stream of consciousness. Each piece is meant to transport the viewer to a hypnotic and unusual space. Working on thick watercolor paper I'm able to change the format of my canvas by cutting the surface into a circle instead of the traditional rectangle. I work on 300lb watercolor paper and acrylic paint.

Current and Upcoming Exhibits

FLAT FILE EXHIBITS: I  have two pieces at Tiger Strikes Asteroid in Brooklyn, NY. The opening is December 1, 2017.

I'm delighted to be a part of the Mingo Gallery's launch of their new flat file program. I have 6 paintings in their flat file amongst a slew of talented artists. They will feature a different artist from the program each month. The opening for this project is the evening of November 18th, 2017.

INSTALLATION: I've been working to create 12+ pieces for a site specific installation at the Riverfront Office Park at 1 Main Street, Cambridge, MA. The installation will go up in January 2018 and be on display for 6 months and was facilitated through the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum's Corporate Program.
