I was born in New York but moved to California at the age of six where I have lived ever since. Due to congenital vision impairment, I learned to read and write with a closed circuit TV system, which I now use to create my art.
I believe that it is only natural that my vision would have an impact on my being an artist; because I couldn’t do certain things, I had to get creative. Now, I find humor in ordinary language and symbols which inspires my work. I believe that I intend pins for a living.
