Hola. Commo esatas? Bien bien!!
I am here at Altos de Chavon on an artist and art teaching residency in La Romana, Dominicana Republica.
It is incredible, and I am feeling so inspired and grateful to be here. I have been making so many paintings trying to capture the overwhelming beauty in the nature here. Also rediscovering monoprinting and other printmaking techniques and enjoying that. I am here til September 1st. 🙂

Hi friends! My Kickstarter campaign for my upcoming artist residency in La Romana, DR has 6 days remaining! Thanks for the support, pledge if you can! Great way to get a piece for a good price and help support my teaching career at the same time. 🙂

Hi friends,

It was a huge honor to have two works selected to be included in this evenings incredible art event, the TriBeca Ball!! The event is always an outstanding fundraiser for my alma mata: The New York Academy of Art. As an alumni, I am honored to be participating, and although I am VERY nervous to go to a red carpet art event ALONE with actual art stars and celebrities surrounding me, I will go proudly and hope I do not fall on my butt while attempting to walk in heels (not my forte).

The work below titled “I Just Woke Up” was selected to hang, and in addition I have a smaller painting in the coinciding alumni pop-up show. See everyone tonight!

Future Ghosts

Excited to have my painting “Future Ghosts” ( oil, acrylic and airbrush on paper, 5″ x 7″, 2014) in the upcoming “Mini Masterpieces” auction this May at

Exciting news: I found out yesterday I would have one of my paintings featured next Spring in the New Britain Museum of American Art’s Spring Auction. Extremely excited to have the opportunity to hang there again. Last year it truly was a dream come true to walk into their museum and see my piece hanging on their walls. They have a wonderful collection of works, and everyone I have met and talked to in connection with the institution has been absolutely lovely. Very honored and grateful to have this opportunity.
