The urban landscapes I seek out convey the feelings of nostalgia for simpler times mixed with a forlorn realization of being out of step. I want my paintings to express a hopeful wish for a revival of community struggling against the current reality of modern life. The juxtaposition of the empty buildings against the wires, which are the real conveyors of connection now, speaks to the current state of isolation we feel as a society. 

I will be exhibiting a body of work at the North Museum in Lancaster, PA from January-April 2021. I have exhibited in numerous group and solo shows including the Katonah Museum, WCC Art gallery and a site specific installation April 2017 at the Catskill Art Society called Save This Too. I have an MFA in painting from Pratt Institute.
