ABOUT ME


What differentiates one artist from another is their perspective—that unique take on the internal/external world that ideally pulls the viewer in. As an American artist living in Paris, I am a cultural hybrid straddling two vastly different civilizations, remaining somewhat alien in both. Observing my reality from this bifocal vantage point has informed my art and provided me with an exceptionally fertile breeding ground for new material.

Essentially my work questions all things conventional: commitment/responsibility, social integration, stereotype/identity, and all stages of maturing (birth, youth, marriage, family, mid-life, the randomness of death & beyond). In an effort to defy gravity, my pieces are often light on the surface, but multi-layered in message
