Bio


I am a painter and UX designer living in Brooklyn, NY. I'm always making something, from paintings to pet-themed patterns to Halloween costumes for me and my dog.


My work explores using formal compositional elements such as barriers and voids to convey loneliness and anxiety. My paintings almost always have a large empty space in the center, a wall to look around, or screen to look through. Figures are obscured by shapes and patterns, pushing the focus to the edges or just out of view, and thus conveying a sense of unease and isolation.
