I am an artist who lives and works in New York City. I grew up in Harlem and East Harlem. I received my BFA from the School of visual arts in 1983 and an MFA In printmaking from city college in 2002. Since I am always around trees and concrete, it created this duality in the art I make, it Reflects the people, objects, and natural forms I encounter. I take these images and develop a story either, in the use of a print, or ceramic piece that a person would use every day.
