How did you get into art?
Since early childhood, I have been very visually sensitive. My parents were lovers of art and culture, and I absorbed a great deal through osmosis. My first serious foray into artmaking was via (analog) photography.
How would you describe your style? What makes your art special?
I make works on paper which are understated, spare, and reticent; every mark is carefully considered. In a world in which so much seems big, loud, and competing for attention, I value what is otherwise and regret that it is often overlooked. I am interested in how little one can say and still convey meaning.
How do you go about developing your work?
I create my pieces intuitively by reflecting on both inner and social landscapes.
Who or what influences you?
I am primarily influenced by literature, especially poetry.
What are you planning to do next?
A restless artist, I am always exploring new ways to express my ideas. At the moment (and this moment may be fleeting, only to change and evolve…), I am considering using newspaper (specifically my longtime bible, the daily New York Times) as substrate and also incorporating text into my pieces. ‘Hope you will stay tuned!
