Photobooth

I finished photographing my new series, You're not You Yet last night.  I thought I would share some of the creative acrobatics to create a studio quality photos with a sheet, ladder, and my pants.

Old school

Deep within the catacombs of my parents house are some paintings from college.  Which, dare i say are approaching 15 years old (ouch).  For your enjoyment and my nostalgia...

Studio Visit

A great friend from medical school (and amazing human) Neeti Doshi came to visit yesterday.  She captured and shared with me some candid photos.  In case you are wondering, I often stand ponderously by my work for hours on end.  It's a critical part of the creative process.



Studio Pictures

Some photos of the table and drying racks I put together with scrap wood in the basement. Apparently as you age working hunched over or on the floor like I did in art class takes a toll.  I built two canvases just on the ground then immediately napped on the couch for an hour my first day back in the studio.  Tables are a big win.  Now I correct my posture while painting like my surgery attending made me in the operating room.  Gotta watch those ergonomics.

The First Step

This website is a culmination of a three month hiatus from my medical training as an Emergency Medicine resident.  As mentioned in my artist statement, my main body of work is in dialogue with my training as a physician, exploring emotional and physical experiences of trauma, fatigue, compassion, and beauty.  An honest thank you for taking time to view my art.  Please reach out at any time with comments or queries.
