Demonstration Plastik abb.163, the piece included in the Small Works exhibition, is a signature work, a particularly interesting bronze sculpture in the collection… describing a farcical situation in which the figure, grasping a commonplace chair and lifting a cinder block brick, becomes a human counterbalance. A crucial tension (bisecting space) is achieved as this figure […]

Born in the Southwest, my family moved to the D.C. area when I was four, where I first remember seeing artwork in museums. We then moved to Rochester, NY when I was eight. By the age of 14, I knew that I wanted to be an artist, and began painting. The family moved back west […]

Have you ever felt that time has stopped, and you can take in everything around you? I had that feeling at the lake during the summer. I looked down into the deep green and saw a turtle slowly glide for cover. Fish darted out from the shadow of my paddleboard. I had no place to […]

I am a painter and graduated from the Academy of Art University, San Francisco. I like to find inspiration in my daily life. For someone who is a bit introverted and shy like me, it is easy to feel embarrassed by anyone’s gaze or actions. This is why I create the Interpreting Discomfort series. Interestingly, […]

Concrete block, plywood, construction materials and dug earth are memories from my early childhood. My father, uncle, and grandfather build the house I grew up in. Those early experiences of seeing raw materials for what they were, and the process of building eventually became a main theme and metaphor for my work. I am originally […]

One recent series, exhibited in January 2021 with The Wildroot Group, featured black & white inkjet prints taken on the streets of Manhattan. They […]

In 2018 I was challenged by a mentor of mine, to not just call myself a visual artist, but  ponder on what type of artist I actually am. I began looking at both my past and more recent works collectively, and the theme of my work was and has consistently been liberty! Based upon that […]

Some people aren’t sure what they want to do when they grew up but I knew it would be something to do with art. I was the kid that drew bunnies for everyone in elementary school, made costumes in middle school, and took an art class every semester in high school. When I went to […]

My studio is based in Buffalo, NY, where I am currently a resident artist at Buffalo Arts Studio. Though my recent work is primarily grounded in drawing, I was trained as a painter and graduated with my BFA in Drawing and Painting from SUNY Fredonia and my MFA from the University at Buffalo. Through drawings […]
