My artwork is my mind translated in pencil, pen, marker and paint. Each stroke is a page and each work is a chapter that stems from my life. Art allows me to address thoughts and ideas as well as to explore topics that fascinate me. Through a formal vocabulary of colors, numbers, patterns and letters that hold personal significance, I seek to share a glimpse of my life and my mind with all of the ups, downs and all-arounds that stem from my experiences with bereavement, immigration, adversity, isolation, self-actualization, self-destruction, loss, time and existence. In my recent work, the imagery and messages are self-consciously comprised of, and yet obscured by, a foundation of geometric patterns. My work is inundated with hidden and obvious details, to reflect the thinking process and dialogue that occur in my mind. I employ this method to contrast the rigorous perfection of order against the unrestrained freedom and spirit of childhood that still remains.

Lincoln Artwork

Lincoln
Prismacolor Pencil on paper
19×24
The featured “Lincoln” piece, was completed in 2012 after a serious accident, which limited my mobility for a period of time. During this time I was exclusively rehabbing and drawing, which resulted in a significant number of pieces, including portraits of historical icons such as Anne Frank, Marilyn Monroe and the Lincoln piece featured on this page. I decided to draw Lincoln, because I admire him as a person and a President. He was not only responsible for Emancipation Proclamation, which resulted in the abolition of slavery, but was also the first major leader in the United States to feel that women should be allowed to vote. “Lincoln” is layered with the national flag. The white stars (50 since July 4, 1960) frame the portrait and are also the given value of the stamp, a common theme in my work. The alternating thirteen stripes are drawn as circles including the actual seven red and six white stripes.
“In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.”
– Abraham Lincoln
