Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I paint for fun and profit.
I'm polite - gentlemanly. I have a deep, abiding love for difficult
art, arty movies, and uncomfortable music. I'll never shy away from
an intense discussion. I visit museums (I get in free) and
galleries, relax over a drink and some good food, and revel in my

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Painting and traveling for shows. Forgetting to eat lunch but
remembering to grab ice cream at the market. Painting Napoleon and
closing a show in NYC this weekend.
My cats were recently featured in a six part telenovela about the
New York art world.
Took French so I could paint in Tarnac and visit the D'Orsay some
Retiring in Sicily.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Traveling lite. Cooking. (My eggplant parmesan is as good as my
grandmother's). Making / drinking good coffee, making out, and
arguing philosophy with non-professionals.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
painting, (creative)sex, why my insta likes max out at 23. Tony,
wondering where he could be, who he is with, what is he thinking,
is he thinking of me, and whether he'll ever return someday.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'm very social and active in the art world. If I'm going out, I'm
usually with art-friends, going to galleries, looking for somewhere
to drink and talk shop, somewhere to dance, maybe.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm married and separated. We've been best friends since forever.
We aren't a couple anymore, we don't live together, and we're both
pretty cool with it. Cool? Cool.
A celebrity couple you might know were given a painting of mine as
a wedding present (not by me).
