I am a painter living in New York City.  I paint with acrylics on canvas, and most recently I’ve been exploring color relationships.  I also most recently switched to painting on watercolor paper instead of canvas, executing quick studies of paintings, encouraging a stronger outflow of ideas and experiments.  Other earlier work I’ve done involves my inspiration living in Mexico.  These paintings include symbolism from Mexican culture that I had learned from a wide variety of people I met and hung out with on a semi-regular basis.
For a time in both New York City and Mexico City I was a muralist.
