This body of work continues my ongoing interest in the interrelationship between media, communication and technology. The series incorporates brand names and logos, while utilizing methods and techniques of traditional sign painting. The paintings and drawings in the series deal with the omnipresence of "branding", the supersaturation of advertising and suggest a universe of electronic commerce.

A subset of my Branding series is a group of paintings in which the brands used by a particular individual are accumulated within one painting and serve as a kind of portrait of that individual. This reflects the larger social use of specific brands to both project a desired image to others as well as to shape one’s image of oneself.
As a visual artist and curator working in NYC, my work examines the interrelationship between media, communications and technology. I studied at the University of Washington in Seattle and graduated from Rutgers University. In 2008 I received a Mid-Atlantic Foundation for the Arts Fellowship and was awarded a digital residency at the Atlantic Center for the Arts. I have exhibited in numerous venues including two solo exhibitions in NYC. My work is in several collections including the West/SAI, AG Rosen and the Sprint Art Collection. Reviews include the New York Times, The New Yorker, and Frieze, among others.
