As an artist living in the Bronx, New York City, urban images are central to my work. I am a printmaker, painter and mixed media artist with a degree in visual art from Empire SUNY (2005) and an MFA with a concentration in printmaking from Lehman College CUNY, 2010. In 2006 I had a solo show at the N.Y.C. Transit Museum and at the Manhattan campus of Empire College. I have had work purchased by Montefiore Hospital and my work is in the collections of the N.Y.C. Transit Museum, Lehman College, Empire College and St. Louis University. I have worked with two non-profit art groups in the Bronx: Bronx Printmakers and Studio 889.

I work primarly as a printmaker but I also draw, paint and use collage. I live in the Bronx, New York City and this informs my work. Structures of New York – bridges, water towers, elevated trains- fascinate me. I am drawn to their geometries and patterns. Mechanical parts and their similarities with biological and botanical forms is another theme I am pursuing. I try to approach these subjects with imagination and playfulness.
