Historically, my art has revolved around domestic settings. Most often, out of necessity and convenience, that setting has been my own home, of which there have been many over the years. I tend to gravitate to worn, or more precisely, "lived-in" subject matter. My work is characterized by the unpredictability and distinction of places and things that have long since entered private space from their commercial origins - when they have become personal, defined by, and sometimes invisible, to those who live amongst them.

AI(Y)R is an opportunity for me to continue developing the themes and subject matter I am most interested in, while simultaneously offering others engagement and insight into the artistic process and a lasting collection of art embedded with personal meaning.
Painting by one's lonesome can feel isolating at times. So, i have spent the last 14 years teaching art to students of all ages. In New York, I have taught for Pratt Institute, the Queens Museum, Studio In A School, and beyond. I am enthusiastic about making art and facilitating the experience for others.
