I'm a painter with a studio in Kingston. I lived in NYC for 14
years. Spent time in Barcelona, San Francisco and France. I moved
to the Hudson Valley 4 years ago and find it amazing.
What I’m doing with my life

Smart and curious people
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to make things work easier than they do.
On a typical Friday night I am
At the studio or dinner, my house or theirs
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Well, well, curious aren't we?
