About

Once upon a time in Brooklyn

I draw and make stuff. People were asking how they could buy the stuff I was making, and I started an etsy shop so I could direct them somewhere. Once the shop opened I started thinking up more things I could make. I started out listing all original art and have moved more towards items that involve reproducing my work. My shop has items that range from utilitary items like tote bags and light switch covers to increasingly anti-untilitarian things like books and wall calendars.

I collect old photographs and draw from them, and then make paintings, collages and prints from my drawings. I mostly find photographs at flea markets, in antique and junk shops. They are often family snapshots, from the 1920s through the 1970s, or studio portraits from the last quarter of the 19th century.

It's strange these documents are for sale as part of a consumer market place, instead of being in albums on bookshelves in the homes of the families of those in the photos. I find myself at the intersection between a fascinated voyeurism and a determination to know these documents as well as humanly possible in order to give them new, longer life.
