Land of the Three Wise Men, 26 x16 in
I grew up in Brooklyn for the majority of my life, but I was born in Bombay. I've been making artwork for as long as I can remember which started with weekly art projects with my mother: making people out of rocks, cutting up images from the circus program and making new images and things with the fragments from many other things. Not much has changed since I've become older -- I've become more sophisticated in my technique and drawing, but my process has remained the same.

In recent years, I've been preoccupied with the connections linking nature and industy, animals and humans, and the constant shifting that takes place as woodlands become towns...towns become suburbs...and as suburbs densly surround cities. Using these ideas of change, overlap and transformation, I have been making drawings and paintings using a few images that at times are multiplied again and again on paper which start to create abstract patterns and shapes.

I received my undergraduate degree from Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY, and completed my MFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York City in 1998.

During the 2005/2006 Academic year, I lived in Rome, Italy, as a Visiting Artist at the American Academy in Rome.
