Hello from Shanghai, China! I'm now working here as a middle school and IB art teacher at an international school. Working hard on finding my place within the art world here, and getting studio space set up. I'll be here for 2 years... see you on the other side!
I've been working super hard putting together the show "Bridge of Art," at ACCEA/NPAK. This international exhibition brings together the artwork of two schools which I am extremely close to and have worked with, The International Child Development Center in Yerevan, Armenia, and the Boston Higashi School, in Boston, MA, USA. It is an exhibition to highlight Autism Awareness in Armenia and showcase the extraordinarily creative work which these children can make. Come and check out the opening on February 20! Click here to see the show notes and pictures from the opening! Also - here is an interview I gave for Yerevan's public radio; and an appearance on Hanrayin, a morning TV show in Yerevan - both showcasing the exhibition and Autism Awareness. (Both mostly in Armenian.)
Hello from Yerevan, Armenia! After compulsive traveling basically every chance I could get for the past two years, I decided to scrap my life in Boston and go volunteer abroad semi-permanently. I ended up in Armenia in order to get a better grasp on my heritage, and also to turn a new page in my life. I'm working as an art therapist as well as a co-curator in a gallery in Yerevan, in addition to enjoying my life. Some new work I've made from the past year is also available to view in the galleries.
Site has gotten a big makeover, and should be much easier to navigate and see my work. New galleries with new work are up and running, enjoy! I have one piece up in Vivere until the end of December 2013. Come for the vigil on December 6th 6-8pm, or check out the show in person at 571 Columbus Avenue, Boston MA.

I've made it back from India to the U.S. for my last semester of school as well as my upcoming graduation show, so you can expect lots of new pieces to come from the approaching semester. I will announce the date of the show when it is planned out. As for now, the work I did in India is now online. I made many handblock printed textiles while I was living in Jaipur, India for a month, and you can view them in the 2010 gallery. Enjoy!
