My work is a combination of : satire and realism….”satirealsm”
I live in Queens because: I love the diversity and proximity to the city….and I can’t afford Manhattan.
To instagram or not to instagram: not to instagram…(I never signed up)
Being an artist means I pay my bills by: working in the pre-press department in a print production company, and stealing time to paint.
Queens could have a better artist community if it: had more venues to display art, not just art studios for working artists, but places for emerging artists to meet and show art.

In 5 years, Queens will mean this to artists: Hopefully a place that has continued to grow as an artist destination.
Always: Look at ways to improve and grow.
Never: Stop working.
My next project is: A portrait of the good friend’s daughter who lost her battle with leukemia.
