I’m a mixed-media artist, recognized for breathing new life into repurposed materials with an ability to transmute reclaimed objects such as corrugated metal, found wood, rusty nails and car bumpers into enchanting yet powerful forms of artistic expression.
My work range from building frames for my photographs that creates a context and emotional environment for my images, to designing life size installations that give voice to social injustice and environmental problems as a means to explore overlooked issues and encourage conversation and social change.
I’m the founder and creative director of “The Blue Bus Project”, a non-profit organization committed to bringing free participatory art events into underserved communities around NYC, promoting dialogue for social, artistic and political change by way of performance, visual arts and interdisciplinary workshops.
