Log-in to Favorite

My paintings, drawings, and site-specific drawing installations stem from patterns and traces of growth and decay in the natural world and the built environment. At an early age I saw electron micrographs and scientific specimens, and I am still engaged by abstracted images of nature. I am invested in the hand-drawn line for its conveyance of individualism, imperfection, and frailty, and I see my use of line as a tenuous analogy to ink painting.

My public art works include a 700-foot-long mural on bicycle path barriers in Flushing, Queens, commissioned by the NYC Department of Transportation, and a custom design for tree guards in the Fort Greene and Clinton Hill neighborhoods of Brooklyn.
