My studio in New York City is where I am most happy and thankful to have the space, time, materials and inspiration to purely make art for art's sake. The thrill of creating something out of almost nothing but imagination and will is so exhilarating It is pure joy and most empowering. My hope is to bring this optimism to the young and the curious and here in my studio, we can make that possible.
EXHIBITING ARTIST As an exhibiting artist in the city of Amsterdam, I had a wonderful opportunity to meet up with the local Dutch artists who invited me to show my works at the Silo Gallery by the western docks. There, I also did some rubbings in front of the Rijk Art Museum and taught a class from a local school.
