"My latest work is garbage."

Lately the world feels awash in trash. It's abundant in our partisan politics; in pop culture; in recent legal decisions. It feels like we're drowning in garbage that's being delivered as soundbites, click bait, and talking points. Not to mention the real stuff! Bags and bags and bags of trash.

I'm working on a 'garbage' series. It's a little bit Entropy and a little bit Alchemy... turning trash into precious metals by drawing with silver; recording the teeming waste of our existence. Fun stuff.

Educated at NYAA and SUNY Purchase.
