What is this about?

I’m a printmaker in Brooklyn. I make work in the studios at Manhattan Graphics Center. I’m also a member of the Society of American Graphic Artists, and was a featured artist by the Print Club of New York in 2021. I exhibit and sell my prints online, and in juried and non-juried shows, including in the Gallery at the Met in 2022.

I also make drawings and paintings, and I’m avid keeper of sketchbooks— filled indiscriminately with drawings, notes, diagrams, ideas, writing, and bits collected or found.

All this to say, the majority of my art comprises works on paper— ergo: the Flat Files.

I kept a blog for years, but my habit of writing regularly collapsed a few years back, and I’ve found that I miss it. Join me as I pick up the thread of writing— as an integral part of my art process, and more importantly, as a way to connect with other artists and art-lovers.

Take a look at my work on my website or on Instagram— and if it interests you, by all means smash the button below to subscribe.

What You’ll Get

My newsletters include sneak peeks of works in progress and my studio practice; news on upcoming exhibits; announcements of new art available in my shop; and an early heads-up when I have a sale.

I’ll also share bits n’ bobs about my process, including things I’ve learned over the years about materials and techniques, from sketchbook work to printmaking, drawing, and painting. I may also digress into tales from my travels.

Subscribe to get full access to the newsletter and website. My target is a monthly newsletter, at least to begin with, which shall arrive neatly in your inbox. In future, I may add an additional tier of offerings for paid subscriptions, but for now it’s all free.
