2021-2022 Studio Resident

I am currently living in Cambridge, MA, but originally from Newark, NJ. I work in a variety of mediums, including oil, acrylic, mono prints, and occasionally video. The recent Covid-19 lockdown forced me to find alternative ways to continue making art, so a lot of my experimentation derives from that. My current series of work is focusing on using candle smoke to produce delicate, vulnerable images on paper, canvas and panel. Also, I make monotypes using an oversized homemade gel plate, and just started to learn how to silkscreen.
