I was born in Brooklyn, New York, and attended The School of Visual Arts in NYC from 1979 to 1982 where I studied under Elizabeth Murray, Keith Sonnier, Raphael Ferrer, Nachume Miller, and Lucio Pozzi. My classmates included Keith Haring and Kenny Scharf. The East Village gallery scene was gathering steam and I exhibited in several group shows at SVA Gallery in Tribeca, P.S. 1 in Queens, Caidoz Gallery, NYC and Kenkeleba House Gallery in the East Village. During my studies with Italian master Lucio Pozzi, I learned not to adhere to a “recognizable style” and instead depend on my intuition and shift back and forth within different parameters. I’ve been working mostly in a geometric, minimalist, and hard-edged style for decades. I’ve had recent exhibits at The Hue Gallery of Contemporary Art in Wichita, KS, Stirling Art Gallery in Dunedin, FL, the SUPERFINE Art Fair in NYC, and Gallery AIA in Tampa, FL.
