Intaglios, collagraphs, monotypes printed on delicate Japanese papers, collaged over my own artist-
made papers are one aspect of my work; there are also mixed-media collages using colored pencils
over colored inks, and other materials.
I paint figurative works in oil or gouache on paper and board. I frequently incorporate collage into the work. I use color and pattern to evoke emotion and tell stories of daily life where the viewer is drawn into an intimate world.
I shoot overlapping multiple exposure photography, panoramic in shape, with a plastic camera (Holga). These unplanned juxtapositions capture my experience of a particular time and place and at the same time have an identity all their own.
I am continually fascinated by the both the differences and similarities of species and look for parallels often combining elements in the creation of a new hybrid. I look for unexpected combinations as a way to suggest new possibilities.
I am a painter, animator and mixed media installation artist. My work celebrates the human spirit and life on our planet in all its forms. I am also a producer for Brooklyn Free Speech TV and curate and present NUGGETS a show on video-art.
My work examines the individual as a complex social product within in a variety of contexts. I create
new rhetoric about how we interact, compete or re-invent ourselves using our identity as a â€œcultural
Obsessed with the human condition I've used the human figure & head for their unlimited expressive potential to explore social issues inspired by myth, history,& current events. In my new work Cosmic themes appear in a more abstract manner.
