ABOUT ME:
After obtaining my BFA in Graphic Design at the School of Visual Arts, I worked in the Art Department at some of the top publishing houses in New York City designing a vast and varied number of book covers.

At a young age, I developed a passion for the art of collage. Today my work is a reflection of that passion, melded with the graphic arts skills I honed during my tenure in publishing. My education and work experience as a graphic designer have come together on the canvas in the form of Collage Portraiture.

The portraits bring life to a families photographic history, each piece with it's own narrative; trying to the tell the story of the person behind the image. It can represent a link to a families past and provide a visual legacy for it's future. A piece can capture a point in time in the ever changing life of a child, or evoke the memory of a beloved relative long past.

In addition to the work I do from found photographs, I also do commissions for people wanting to personalize this process. It is these collaborative projects I find to be the richest with discovery because they are driven by real life, and not just my imagination. A glance at a wife through the husbands eyes. Capturing a family member at any given milestone. I get to know people and their passions, while creating one of mine! What could be more fulfilling? Contact me for more info.
