Come Visit Me At Gowanus Open Studios

Gowanus Open Studios is coming up on October 20th and 21st and I will have my doors open for both days. Highlights for that weekend include a preview of my latest body of work, live music by local musicians and art for sale. I am excited to share that my studio made it onto a Top Ten list and the building that I am in has other great artists you will definitely need to check out.

Preview My Latest Body of Work
Artist Statement: My drawings are a documentation of control and surrender, of disequilibrium. They are filled with tension and anticipation. I have developed my visual language through a process of internal questioning and deep concentration—a meditation on what is inside of me and an exploration of where the limit of my imagination exists. This process develops the capacity to dream.

World Premiere: Cinematographer for feature documentary, 21 and Done

Exciting News: Documentary Screening

I am excited to share this news with you!

This past year I had the chance to film for Director Kiara C Jones and Producer Jocelyn Scott of Cultivated Films, and contribute my craft to their feature documentary, 21 and Done.

Now the film is out and it will be premiering at Urban World Festival in NYC.

Watch the trailer!
*The above image is an example of my contribution to the film.

Description

21 is a celebrated age for many young Americans, but if you’re aging out of the Foster Care system, the countdown can feel more like a ticking time bomb. What should be an age for celebrating adulthood becomes a time of anxiety, desperation and danger for these young adults. Meet current and former Foster children facing these challenges and the organizations outside the system that are working to support them.
