“Originally from Mahwah, N.J., I began school working in photography but have become increasingly interested in incorporating my photos into silkscreen designs. My newest work is based on the fall of the bourgeoisie, gaining inspiration from Marie Antoinette, I collaborated with artist and model Caiti Boylan to create most of the pieces in this series. I will be part of the B.S. show in the Rotunda at SUNY New Paltz on Dec. 7.”
