I am an artist based on Long Island, NY specializing in illustration and painting. My artistic interest lies in creating images that depict moody female angst. I am currently obsessed with the tediousness and repetition of drawing hair and creating tiny caricature paintings on the handles of old/discarded paintbrushes. Art making has been a life-long passion, and when not working on personal drawings and paintings I enjoy sporadic freelance work painting murals and random commission-based art projects. My connection with incarceration is related to my 20-plus year friendship with Sean Dalpiaz. We established a strong bond in our early teens which was interrupted by his 10 year sentence, during which I unconsciously made the decision to cease all contact. As an artist and a writer we collaborated constantly before his incarceration. Many times during his absence I pushed the thought of him out of my mind, not knowing how to process the situation. I packed away our artwork, I never wrote or visited. He was released in 2010 and re-entered my life, our friendship resumed as if he were never gone.
