Scratch Borads scratch boards
Small drawings I make by inking a piece of mat board, drawing a background with oil pastel, then scratching through the pastel with a needle to reveal the ink underneath. go
Sources & Inspirations sources and inspirations
My process starts with photography. But when I collected these images for inclusion in my exhibition, something larger than process emerged: an artist's vision. go
Image the little prints
This set of eight two-inch square prints fits into a hole in my body of work—small, affordable edition work. go
dream catchers
My new work adds a new element: the interface between the natural world and human detritus.
love knots
My new drawings find sensuous connections between trees and the Earth that nourishes them.
chairs of bryant park
The series of drawings based on the chairs of Bryant Park explore the intimacy and alienation that define our experience as social beings.
This new piece, created especially for the Law Library at the College of William and Mary exemplifies the tree series' combination of calm intensity. next

I've been a very bad boy when it comes to updating my website. Still, if you want a sense of my tree series, go here, here, or here.

My new blog is inspired by one of my new drawings. It's written in two voices: the side of me that loves the City like crazy and the one that wants to get the Hell out.

The recent exhibition at Migration: a Gallery combined my chair drawings with the canopies and tree portraits. I've never had a show look so great and full of curatorial surprises. Kudos to Laura and Rob for doing a great job! gallery info | review | blog
At last, photos from our summer in Virginia, my trip to Burning Man, and a sneak preview of Niobe, my long-awaited first outdoor stone carving.
The Brooklyn Rail combined one of my photos with a super-tight design to make one of their most compelling covers yet.

Two long-time friends collectors commissioned a pair of stools like the Pompeii series—only better!

in edition...
No longer just marble, now I'm also doing reliefs in bronze, like this one.
keeping culture current
At long last, I've completed my portal site, Culturecurrent is larger than just this site, which features my artwork. The new portal lets you visit all of my recent sites, this one included. Some of them are getting some real buzz. Take a look

The Justice Center commissioned a marble award that is designed to pass from one recipient to the next.
collecting on a budget
We've finally released the inaugural issue of Conversations on Collecting, a new community-driven e-newsletter for art collectors and their champions. In this installment, collectors share some tips for bringing a much-desired work of art into their price range.
voice somewhat in the dark
The Village Voice cited my studio as evidence that artists are flocking to the Bushwick neighborhood. That's great, except the studio's not technically in Bushwick at all...
part cootie, part kitty, part kid, my new sculpture defies easy classification
the city that never sleeps
I've embarked on a new series that combines long-exposure photographs with text observations in a series of folio pages about New York by night. These works, beautiful objects in themselves, will eventually be presented in either an artist-book, or in a portfolio of limited-edition prints. Preview the series
