After years of working in collage, in 2016 I've started working with just  paint on the canvas again. In the same spirit of my collage work, I continue to draw inspiration from my New York backdrop; but with a more direct approach. My work can reference current events, present day personal experiences, visual childhood anecdotes and family relationships in life and books. This allows me to create frenetic psychologically-charged imagery with energetic abstractions bursting with color. I work with acrylic markers and paints using mostly palette knives. Bright colors and raw textures are an essential element in my work.
