About the artist
Home | The Gallery | The Hot Shop | Biography & Resume

I grew up outside of Manhattan, and I have always loved the architecture, fashion, and energy of big cities.
I am inspired by fashion, interior design, wallpaper and fabric. When I make my work I like to create an energy, that sweeps you up, and takes you somewhere, much like walking down a city block.
Mood, texture and color are very important to me.
I believe that the energy that I as an artist put into each piece radiates from that piece.
Fashion is a vision that people get to live their lives in, and my artwork is an energy that can shape the environment where you live your life.
