Painter and photographer
I paint landscapes of what the United States looks like now, mostly from my own road trip photos, but also from random images found on the internet.
I’ve exhibited in group shows at Greenkill in Kingston, New York (2018, 2019 & 2021), Emerge Gallery in Saugerties, New York (2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021), The Woodstock Framing Gallery in Kingston, New York (2019), and a Yellow Fine Arts pop-up show in New York City (2019).
I’ve also had solo shows at Greenkill in Kingston, New York (June 6th-June 27th, 2020), and at Green in Saugerties, 92 Partition Street in Saugerties, New York (https://www.modcatskills.com/new-products) in August, 2018 & August, 2019, and have an ongoing show of recent paintings at Green in Saugerties, New York.
