Premlinary Artist Notes: THE WORK is about this artist’s personal journey. It's about falling in love with the visual arts and abstraction in Washington, D.C. in 1995. It's about a pilgrimage to San Francisco in 2000, and the ensuing 8-year artistic discovery process, and it’s about arriving in New York in 2007 for further artistic growth and (r)evolution. Most importantly, it’s a micro-documentary about the bodies of work that germinated and incubated along the way.

In the interest of brevity, I’ve edited myself to a single poignant image representing each body of work. I’m happy to send additional photographs, information, and answer questions. Please e-mail me at

Thank you for going on this journey with me in the discovery of my work.
