I graduated from Tyler School of Art in 1983 and after a few months in Rome I moved back to Philadelphia and then to Brooklyn two years later. During the 1980’s I had some small success showing paintings in the East Village, but towards the end of the decade found myself drawn more to poetry, film and video.

I got married. Formed a production company. Children mysteriously appeared and took root. By the mid 2000s my midlife crisis was growing in direct proportion to my reading glass number. I got tired of sitting in front of computers in a dark room and missed the physicality of drawing and painting.

So around 2015, after taking a hiatus of 25 years I rented a tiny studio in Gowanus and began to scrape away the mold to see if there was anything good underneath. In 2017 I moved my studio to Red Hook and have been plugging away there since.
