Artist Statement

My new work involves the creation of urban based Idealized landscapes in dream like circumstances. Ambiguous relationships and unsettling juxtapositions.

I am focusing and dissecting, rearranging forms derived from the architecture of the bay area to create new perspectives.

My text are idioms of my perception of reality base on the Current social political life we live.

The outcome can be whimsical and yet it offers a serious sociopolitical commentary on the changes to our urban landscape.

My perception of reality, and how I interpret it, was shaped by the implications of the housing scandals of the last decade.

I am attempting to combine these observations to create a compilation of connective awareness.

In 2006, I began working with architectural forms using ink, pencil markers, acrylic paint, and archival pigment. My use of these materials has become a prominent feature of my work..

I was fortunate to attend the School of the Visual Arts in New York City in the early 80’s with artists such as Keith Haring and Kenny Scharf.

As a musician my band played at CBGB's in 1986 & 87 at the Christmas special as the 'Special Guests' after the performance in 1987 we performed live on WFMU radio.

My film debut was at the Castro Theater in San Francisco, BAM in Berkeley, CA, and The Kitchen in New York City in 2000.
