As a young Manhattanite, I studied fine art at the High School of Music & Art and pursued my studies in painting and printmaking at Purchase College and the School of Visual Arts in New York.
For two decades, I professionally restored antique wooden objects with a specialization in the conservation of antique giltwood frames.
In 2009, I completed two major conservation projects for the permanent collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
My work develops intuitively and incorporates diverse layers that alternate consecutive, conscious, deliberate and unpredictable interventions.
The material of my painting is obtained primarily by the use and subtle mixture of highly pigmented oil paint and cold wax. This medium allows my work to evolve through complex processes of superimposition, using additive and subtractive techniques throughout their creation.
I draw inspiration from the conscious and unconscious mind, the urban environment in which I reside, and from decades of visual memories and emotional experiences.
The abstract space that emerges from my practice suggests reminiscences from American historical abstraction, which I revisit in the blurred, vacillating, and elusive light of our modernity.
