I grew up in NJ and spent a lot of time in NYC. I took art lessons when i was barely entering grade school with a family friend named Judy Lewis. One day I Laid my artwork against a wall assuming it was dry, the next day we discovered that the paint had ran down the whole canvas. I revel in what Lewis called “A Beautiful Mistake”. An error that I embraced, became enamored with, and pragmatically infuse in most of my art work. Later I went to school at the George Washington University in Washington, DC where I studied anything but art. It wasn't until after I graduated that I rediscovered and pursued my passion for creating. I moved to Austin in 2012and then to Miami in 2015 to seek more positive inspirations, soaking in new lives and totally different environments. The idea of doing something that goes against the normal grain of society and that also reflects creativity and individuality, while encouraging a DIY nature, is a great inspiration to me. I look forward to where my art takes me, it sort of has a mind of its own.
My collages are often influenced by my personal outlook and true life experiences. I share a fraction of my own little world, by promoting strength, knowledge, and self awareness to overcome social flux and challenges; learning from them through the art of mixed media. I like to express my playful side, never shunning the Basquiat beneath. Culled from the social consciousness and current events of today, each of my pieces feature a different cultural comment viewed through the lens of my experiences. The simple overlapping of many small pieces, arranged in just the right way speaks volumes, touching on issues implicitly without being overbearing or sanctimonious. My work tends to stand as a viewers’ test, challenging what one sees versus what they feel in relation to the contemporary pits, progress and powers effecting as all.
