It seems like some artists have a top-secret process that, if known, would make their work seem more mundane and them less talented. And I’m sure some definitely do have a secret trick up their sleeve…Read More
So, I've been arm-wrestling the internet again. Not trolls, thankfully, just code. See, when I was a kid, I taught myself to make web pages writing HTML from scratch. Nothing complicated…Read More
It's been a busy spring! As you may know, my neighbor's building burned to the ground in late March. I prefer a less destructive form of spring cleaning, but nobody asked me. Luckily the contents of my studio were unscathed, but the apartment did sustain some damage so we're displaced until that can be finished.

Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, I'll be in the little town of Johnson, Vermont - drawing, painting, and writing to my heart's content. I'm looking forward to (and a little overwhelmed by) the opportunity to step out of the daily grind and focus all of my energy on creating new work.
The notification of my acceptance could hardly come at a better time…Read More
