I am compelled to speak the timeless language of light and nature with paint. Through its mechanics I seek to convey the things I see, but moreover, the feelings I experience when I see them. I like to think of my pictures as songs.

My work focuses on those moments in life when everything seems to stand still, when I am arrested by something and might not even know why. It could be a subtle human gesture or the particular way in which sunlight falls across the side of a building. Somehow there is a great desire to share these things.

Drawn to the unbeaten path, my work tends to bring recognition to unlikely subjects. I believe that our daily lives hold vast treasures, and one need only open their eyes to catch them. As a lifelong New Yorker, I have a deep personal connection to aspects of the city that often fill my canvases.

My paintings usually represent the loneliness of urban life, exploring a sense of hiding away, of drawing curtains upon one's self. These edifices might be made of stone, cardboard or just body language.
