1. ART ON THE AVENUE Mt Vernon Ave in Del Ray, Alexandria, VA. Saturday, Oct 1, 10-6pm. I'm in space 39 which is between Howell and Windsor Ave. Who would think that this local town fair would be one of my best shows of the year?
  2. EASTERN MARKET 7th St SE, Capitol Hill, Washington, DC. Sunday, Oct 2, 10-5pm. I still can't get enough of this market. I'll be selling my artwork like I did in the good ol' days. My DC representative, Dino Almaguer, will be selling for me at EASTERN MARKET most weekends this fall. Contact him directly at (240) 419-4151 or at I do my best to keep him supplied with great work.
  3. DOWNTOWN HOLIDAY MARKET AT THE SMITHSONIAN NATIONAL PORTRAIT GALLERY F Street between 7th and 9th Streets N.W., Washington, DC. Friday, Dec 9th through Friday, Dec 23rd. 12-8pm every day. I'm honored to be participating in this exceptional market again.


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.

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.
