Hospital for Special Surgery
Hospital for Special Surgery in New York has been committed to the treatment and rehabilitation of children since its founding as a children’s hospital in 1863, and has emerged as a leading academic specialty hospital. With the entire patient and family experience in mind, we curated original artwork for the new Lerner Children’s Pavilion. Focusing on contemplative abstract works with sophisticated color palettes and calming compositions, the artwork at HSS welcomes all visitors, children and adults alike.
I think that my work speaks to a universal audience. I do not make specific cultural references. Rather, I focus on formal issues such as light and space through composition and form. I invite the opportunity for people to bring their own personal experiences into the paintings.

I love utilizing chance in my practice at various intervals. Most of my finished works have some element of chance. Although my work is heavily research-based, the time I spend making work is very improvisational and intuitive and often involves using flaws and imperfections along the way to influence next steps.
