In my Dumbo studio, the focus is drawing and painting. Using water-based materials including gouache, watercolor, and ink, I make imaginative and free-wheeling works on paper. I have put up several painting exhibitions in New York City. Presently, my energies are dedicated to making 40 watercolor paintings for an upcoming children’s book.
