Happy end of 2018!
As the year is coming to a close, so is my exhibit 'Close Your Eyes' at the Storefront Project Gallery on Orchard Street. I'm really happy with how the show shaped up and all the beautiful faces I got to see at the opening. If you haven't been able to make it yet, this week is your last chance. I will be back from Europe on January 4th, so if you'd like to set up a gallery visit I'd love to be there to chat with you – let me know.

Article on the show
I am beyond grateful that magical New York Times and Vanity Fair writer Kurt McVey wrote a gallactic review of the exhibit in Whitehot Magazine. What will you find when you go beyond the rabbit hole?
Kurt has been a long-term collaborator and dear friend of mine and knows my work better than most anyone, and we've really come full circle working together this year. In other words, he nails it and does with words what I attempt with collage.
2018 has been a fascinating, interesting, transformative, challenging year (as they tend to be, right?). I continued my path in what I feel is acting according to my purpose: creating artwork that gently opens viewers (and me) to their expansive inner potential, so that they can create a reality they'd like to be in. That's my dream for the planet, and I hope to keep at this vision in 2019. For now, it's nice to pause and think of everything that's yet again changed. I'm sure a lot has happened for you, as well.
In 2018, I've also been able to travel and explore wondrous new realms, which I am excited to work through visually. Thank you all for your continued support, lessons and aid in growth.
When traveling it's nice to not completely give up my practice, since I don't have the studio, so I enjoy making digital pieces. I've actually quite liked taking the collages to photoshop, as it opens some new tools and explorations for me. But – I am still a very tactile person! I will definitely keep cutting things out (and I mean that literally as well as metaphorically) and layering new pieces as I continue my artistic ventures.
In early 2019, I have an extensive commission for Universal Music Group coming out soon that I'm looking forward to sharing, and I am going to paint a mural in Brooklyn. I can't wait for all the other adventures and for our paths to cross this coming year. But before that, I wish you a very happy closing of 2018 and a smooth transition into 2019. May 2019 be deeply fulfilling.
