Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Red Hook



ARTIST STATEMENT: My work deals with the dynamic balance between what is known and what is mysterious. I investigate this by using the modalities of color, movement and shadow. I like to address the idea that negative spaces are infused with meanings as important as positive space. Doing works in cut paper is one way I speak to this. The process is subtractive, so I have to think a few steps ahead. Even with planning, what comes out when I cut away the background is a delightful surprise. The simplicity, flexibility and strength of paper enables me to transform this material into two and three dimensional art with a range of expression that is limitless. The thing I enjoy most about creating is the process of discovery-that one idea leads to another. Learning how to master the tools and materials,the tactile, physical act of making something is a journey that gives me great satisfaction. My paintings, burst with color because I believe that it is through the color spectrum that Life-force reveals itself. In my drawings, I like to temper my work with humor, irony and enigmatic elements.
