I pursue two divergent artist paths. I make abstract expressionist drawings (mostly using ballpoint and rollingball pens) and create precise geometric patterns, especially self-repeat tessellations and interlaced designs (mostly using Adobe Illustrator).
Much of my recent print work is an effort to synthesize these different disciplines.
My graphics beginnings came as a hand-on teenage printer's devil in the job shop of a weekly newspaper. Now all print work is digital, based on ink jet technology.
I pay the rent by working as a CAD Designer in fashion studios of New York City. I blog under the name "patternsmith."
