||I draw, paint, create prints, and work with some photography, including digital imagery. My background in movement has a great influence on my imagery/artwork. I prefer to focus on, light, line, movement and shape, how light reveals objects and meaning through shadow. I'm interested in life, nature, music, relationships (human and objects) , identity, community, freedom and justice. In the future I would like to incorporate my artwork into film, multimedia and community or public works.
Country: United States

I have taught elementary and high school art in Westchester, Queens and Brooklyn, NY. Most recently I have been an instructor in the Fine Arts Department at Kean University as well as William Paterson University, a Program Manager at Free Arts NYC and presently an administrator and artist working with the NYCTS. Through the arts (visual and performing) we work with at risk and low income communities to help promote bicycle and pedestrian safety.
