Born 1961 BostonI feel a strong affinity with the Saatchi collection as I helped install the first Saatchi exhibition in 1984 while living and painting in London and working for Momart. The paintings I created that year in the UK gained me acceptance to Yale which led to a profound experience as a Henry Luce Scholar in Bali . I now live and work in Putney Vermont where I have an art studio in my barn and travel the world as a partner in jewelry design with my wife Marianna.
