i'm doing my

home work...

… and I want to share it with you.


I draw what I think and see. 

February is filled with love.  All 29 days.  Let's leap in!

My visual blogs  are back at our apartment in Brooklyn after a successful showing at Brooklyn Perk. I'm seeking another public space to exhibit my work!  Meanwile.....

Buy my art here! 

This month I've decided to take in the night air and night sky (what a skyline!)  each night.  There is a sweet rooftop in our building.   Just taking some moments each night will be good for my creative being.  

Be brave and pay attention!

I believe in love!  And hope! And humor!
