I became entranced by drawing while studying fashion design at F.I.T. I respond to intimate scale and sometimes reference children’s book illustrations almost to review my first experiences of visual excitement. I’m drawn to the romantic tradition and enjoy the sentimental with a touch of mischief.
Many of my pieces have been nocturnal, perhaps because I worked for more than a decade on the midnight shift.
