Animal Paintings



In Sept 2013 I made a painting on a found seat cushion of a lion’s face (first image). This piece was a happy accident which lead to a new body of work in which I use foam and stuffed animals to make paintings. This painting marked a transition from painting on traditional stretched canvases (objects) to creating paintings with found objects and varieties of substrates.

In 2011, after graduating from college with a degree in philosophy, I decided to become an artist. I got my first studio in Brooklyn, NY and started creating animal paintings with Japan paint. I used animal imagery found in National Geographic magazines to create this body of work.
