I am a New York based artist, born and raised in Queens, concentrating in painting and printmaking. I received my BFA from Brooklyn College in 2019, where I made work that straddles the line between observation and abstraction. My work explores the synthesis of observation and perception, while searching for the energy contained in mark making. I am interested in experimentation within the methods of printmaking and investigating ways of manipulating the process of etching. I am also the Director of the Art Gallery at Fairleigh Dickinson University in New Jersey.

Human (unstable state of being) born in the French West Indies (Caribbean, Island of St-Martin). I am a draftsperson and printmaker, adept at creative techniques which require complex processes or chemicals. My subjects are intangible concepts like the void, time, and diaphanous subjects. I am curious, always searching, and plan to spend my existence trying to understand all I can and illustrate these ephemeral aspects of life. I enjoy discussion of any topic - art techniques, books, science, biology - and am always searching to expand my mind.

My work is about floating feelings that well up in response to an encounter. What do we feel and why? What are the emotional limits created by an encounter with an object, a scene, a person, or a memory- and how do we approach those limitations? As I create a print, I think: What is a state of un-being? Listening carefully, then taking tiny, conscious steps towards an answer, printmaking moves my mind through these otherworldly thoughts.

I am an artist from New York that creates both prints and sculptures. I use art as a form of connecting with different parts of myself as well as a way to have a voice and be seen. My art is
the only form of my activism in the world because I have felt constantly silenced and erased from existence.  However, my art holds its ground, does not go away and hide.
