In recent years, my work focuses on people and trees, usually nude. I draw inspiration from contemporary urban artists, Zen Buddhist paintings, and figure drawings from the greats such as Michaelangelo, Egon Schiele, and Kathe Kollwitz.

Born and raised in Southern California, I lived in Los Angeles for most of my life.  I moved to Boston in 2011 and am anxiously awaiting my first blizzard.
