    I’m thrilled to announce my new collaboration with menswear and lifestyle blogger, Dandy In The Bronx. (Diego León) Last month I approached Diego about creating a series of portraits on his best looks from 2016. It’s in the same vein as a “greatest hits.”  He chose his favorite looks and I…

  2. Studies from The Brooklyn Museum

    Date 29 Dec 2016
    Recently I checked out The Brooklyn Museum for the first time. Painted studies in museums was something that seemed really obnoxious to me when I was in college at School of Visual Arts. Now that I’m older I see the value in creating them. Drawing and painting from life continues…

  3. “Judy Hopps” iPad Painting

  8. Studies from The Yale Art Gallery

    Date 20 Nov 2016
    Unfortunately I’ve been sick for the past week. Just a cold but it has inhibited my workflow to say the least. Thankfully I’m out of the woods now. I had cabin fever this past weekend so I managed to venture out to The Yale Art Gallery to do create some…

    As a visual artist I also became a photographer out of necessity. Whether I’m painting urban landscapes or people having a reference point is great. I used to use photos from Google for most of my work but at the end of the day it’s someone else’s property. It’s much…
