About me & my work:

I am a conceptual artist, painter, performer, comedian and (self-proclaimed) psychotherapist. Before devoting myself fulltime to my art, I had a career as an art director in advertising. My visual art has been widely exhibited at many venues including White Columns, Artists Space, Printed Matter, The New Museum, The Bronx Museum and the Scope Art Fair.

I also perform live; my most popular character is Dr. Lisa, S.P. (self-proclaimed) who psychoanalyzes people on stage and on the street. I have had celebrity guests such as Joe Gordon-Levitt and Amy Schumer. I have performed at The Brooklyn Museum, Joe’s Pub, The Woolly Mammoth Theater and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. An audio/visual exhibition of my therapy sessions is scheduled for The Brooklyn Academy of Music, Fall 2014. I am currently the advice columnist for The Bushwick Daily.

In addition, I have made many random television appearances, such as on The People's Court, VH1, The Today Show, Car and Driver TV, as well as on Late Night with David Letterman with my hamster Bitey that bowled. Link to the video below.

ARTIST STATEMENT

I have an exaggerated need to emotionally connect with people in a direct way, which I believe is what drives my work. As a child growing up, I was very shy, isolated and struggled at making friends. It seems that my work is a reaction to that part of my childhood. I use my work to try to make emotional though platonic connections, even with people I meet casually, which is ridiculous, but I love it. Art is healing; and I am now described as outgoing.
