It was an honor to return to E.H. Greene Intermediate School as their artist in residence. In the course of one week and 20 classes, had the pleasure of engaging with 5th and 6th graders from art instructors Amy Glazer and Katy Hall’s studios about my work and journey as an artist. In addition to the students learning about my influences and the artists that interest me, we worked on two 4 x 4 foot canvases that were inspired by my latest work. Thank you Principal Philip Hackett and Sycamore school district for inviting back and Most importantly I would like to thank all 800 students that I met, who showed interest in the work I do and made these paintings come to life.

Transformation: Interpretation of Space and Place

Myself along with painters Beth Goldstein and Mary Barr Rhoads will be featured together in the exhibition Transformation: Interpretation of Space and Place. The physical environment of the inner city and the dense architectonic shapes which reference musical allegories and all over pictorial rhythm are a consistent theme in my work. Complimenting the theme of the exhibition, I will present a compilation of paintings that I have completed over the past two to three years. Though the subject matter and intent remains the same in these works, there is a shift with how space and place with my subjects is interpreted.
