I  stopped making art a few years after art school out of   fear. I used every excuse not to step  into the abyss- I knew what was there and what was entailed. So I followed the path of least resistance- adopted what I  considered “normal” : I acquired a mortgage, a car payment, and everything else needed to sustain such things. This is a blog about second chances. This time around, my art IS  my life’s project. My goals:  see better, draw better, paint better- everything else is beside the point. I want to make MY  respiration meaningful.

I attended the San Francisco Art Institute as well as The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and am currently based out of Brooklyn, New York.

        Did you delete your FB? I came across the metro card you painted for me. I still have to send you a pic of my grandma. I know you’ve been asking me to send it but I guess I’m now in a food place where I can look through her pics. Anyway lets stay in touch.

    Love it. I tried following the conventional line of thought and found out how miserable a human can be, and have never been happier since embracing my need to write. Good luck to you and all the best!
