Artist Bio:
I've been an artist of sorts my whole life but when I tore my ACL skiing last winter and got surgery I decided to dive into my art with no intention to cope with my temporary disability. I used to try to do art the "right" way but this time I just grabbed some pens and markers and saw what came out. I ended up creating an entire alternate universe and character as a joke (at first). They're usually lost in space and time but they (I) never give up and take a humorous, sarcastic but ultimately positive view of life. This experience has taught me I can travel father in my mind than on my feet. I often feel a sense of eternity and loss of self in my art in the best way possible.

I have shown works at several recent shows at The Greenpoint Gallery and have been granted use of their studio space while volunteering there as well. I'm also a social worker visiting the mentally ill in their homes, hospitals and on the street. I spend a lot of time flying through the earth and above the ground from one real life alien world to another. Most of my small works were started on the subway or bus.
