I live and work in New Haven, CT. I have been painting for more than 20 years.

About the Coffee Cup Heads:

Let me tell you a little about the series of paintings featuring the man with a “coffee cup head”. Have you ever worked in an office all day? On your first day of work, the first things they will tell you is where your desk is and where the coffee machine is (thank God for coffee!). At some point in the day my mind will fantasize about being somewhere else, anywhere else. The coffee man paintings are mostly about daydreaming of escaping the office and being free. The coffee cup that is my head is the feeling of the caffeine running through my body and my mind. The suit that the coffee man is wearing is the reminder that I am still in the office and not free at all.
