I spend most of my free time reading; my favorite authors include (but are not limited to) Michael Ondaajte, Tom Robbins, Margaret Atwood, and newly found (for me) Michael Chabon and John Irving. I also love to explore Philadelphia's city streets and parks on the hunt for interesting architecture, sculpture and art.
I am greatly influenced by Keith Haring. His extensive body of work - ranging from paintings to sculpture to subway murals - can still be seen worldwide, and his influence on the '80s New York art community remains an important piece of history.
When inspired, I pass the time with a Sharpie® in hand making unique illustrations on anything from paper to old wood shelves to curb rescued furniture. The Natural Sciences and Philosophy greatly influence my work which has been referred to as "amoeba art capturing a surrealistic view of some of the most basic units of life." Upon embarking on a piece, I rarely plan on a set outcome, relying on my subconscious to dictate line, color and the piece's final appearance. In doing this, I venture into a new and different representation of life's complexities.
