My studio/storefront at 285 5th Ave, Park Slope, Brooklyn is the only place in the world where my artwork is always available. I have a sign in my window that states, "I'm open by appointment and by luck" which basically means I'm open to the public when I'm in my studio.
I still sell my work at art festivals and street fairs at a variety of locations throughout the year. And since the Whitney Museum opened up in the Meatpacking district, I occasionally (and it's usually a spontaneous decision) take my work and sell right there on the sidewalk. My spot is usually on Washington St. around Little W 12th St. Follow me on Twitter if you want to know "where I am right now" which is also connected and displayed on my home page.
On my home page, you can also sign up for my email updates which will give you deeper insights into what I'm creating and will let you know about my upcoming shows. I only send about 4 mass emails a year so you don't have to worry about being inundated with tons of emails from me.
If you're in New York City, ideally you will visit my studio/storefront/shop. If you would like to see where the magic happens and check out everything I currently have available, I recommend making an appointment for a studio visit. My studio/storefront/shop on Park Slope's 5th Ave is a small space but it's where I've been making art for the last 16 years. And my location has gone from a sketchy neighborhood to one of the most happening streets in Brooklyn.
I do my best to have storefront hours on the weekends so please call or text me for my hours: (917) 855-6564. Every weekend is different. I also can be available on weekday nights.
I have a representative, Dino Almaguer, selling for me at Eastern Market, which is one of my favorite places in the country. It's a food/art/craft/antique/flea market located at 7th St, S.E. on Capitol Hill in Washington DC. I've had a consistent presence there since 1992. Dino sells for me a couple of weekends a month. Weather has a lot to do with whether he's there or not. Contact him directly at (240) 419-4151 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. I do my best to keep him supplied with great work. About 6 times a year, I visit DC and make cameo appearances at Eastern Market and a variety of art/craft shows which will always be listed on my website.

My Pope Francis painting is my most popular image right now. When I painted him last summer in Italy with a New York pigeon on his head, I had no idea he would be coming here. Prints are available: $200 for a 18" x 13" limited edition print (edition of 100) or $40 for a 11" x 8 1/2" photo print.
This is a two-minute video of me the Brooklyn Museum released in November 2012.
There are two images using this technique; an ostrich and a dog. After I print each silkscreen, I hand painted them which gives each one a completely different look. And they're only $100.
