- Contemporary Artist, present
Currently I paint in an old airplane hangar in Santa Monica, California. The recurring sound of airplane take-offs and landings from the active airport runaway outside my studio reminds me of my own history of travel.
After I finished my Bachelor's Degree in Fine Art at UCLA (University of California Los Angeles) and my Master’s Degree in Fine Art at NYU (New York University), my wanderings took me from the U.S. to Asia to Australia to Europe and back, again and again. These wanderings have helped provide a series of spaces that appear within my paintings.
Within the past year my paintings have entered collections in Tokyo, Rio de Janeiro, Paris, and Amsterdam as well as Los Angeles, San Francisco and Boston. My latest solo exhibition ran from September 25, 2010 until January 2011 at the Manifesta Maastricht Gallery in Maastricht, The Netherlands.
My thoughts on art and politics can be found on my blog, Speed of Life.
