Bio

───────────────────────

During my college years, I studied painting with minimalist Denzil Hurley at Hampshire College where I developed an obsession with the idea of the universal language of Abstraction. I attended Hunter College for an MFA to work with the conceptual artist Robert Morris, to negotiate issues in my work regarding time and the body. To support my studio practice after graduate school, I traveled internationally as a representative and drafter for the Conceptual Artist Sol LeWitt, who became a close friend and mentor. After his death, I lived in Scandinavia for six years, recently returning to New York.

After more than 20 years of experimentation, scouring performance, video, photography, installation and digital media for ways to make representation more neutral, I found my holy grail in a return to abstraction, locating a groundbreaking way to represent people using a biographical framework as a point of departure.
