Watercolor . Food . Maps . Illustration

I graduated from Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in painting in 98' and I have been in Brooklyn ever since.

I’ve had the pleasure to paint for the likes of: Starbucks, Kohl's, Sports Illustrated, the Diner Journal, Jaime Oliver Magazine, Alice Waters & appeared on the NPR Brian Lehrer Show.

Much of my work is about tapping into the nostalgia of childhood that we can't describe with language. Food, smell, taste, I don't know how to totally describe them because they're intangible, but it's what I'm after. Trying to understand why we are drawn to the things we are drawn to and desire.

The most rewarding aspect of my work is the connection & collaboration with other people.
