I am a mixed-media artist and illustrator from Long Island, New York.
My work is a broad mix of the realistic and abstract, though at the moment I am focusing on the ornamental and decorative nature of pattern in relation to real objects. My work is influenced by paisley, mod, Arabic, Celtic, Art Nouveau, Surrealist, Cubist, and many other designs and movements. Also, music is a great motivator.
I would like my viewers to come away from my work with a sense of wonder, at the movement and indication of space through line, shading and pattern. I want my pieces to overwhelm and make the viewer search and explore the surface, paths of constant energy.
