The grit, determination and sense of fun I acquired growing up and playing on the streets of Brooklyn have found their way into my paintings. For me, the magic of painting happens when, after applying paint and wiping it off, perhaps hundreds of times, there is that moment when—suddenly—the surface that was once inanimate, comes alive. My paintings and works on paper are represented in private and public collections including Franklin Furnace Archives at the Museum of Modern Art, Johnson & Johnson, New York Public Library Print Collection and School of Visual Arts.
