I am an American artist and I have some guilt. But I’m trying not to let it get in the way of making stuff. What would I respond if asked “Who are You”? Certainly not what I have listed below. I will tell you that I am a Performance artist and that I created a large body of work (over 200 hundred pieces) as such in the 80’s. I was born in Australia, raised in Arizona, lived in Chicago for ten years and moved to New York City in 1991. I have a studio on Sixth Street in the East Village (stop by sometime) where I have been making sculptures, videos, performance props and music.

Everyone needs two things: a band and a magazine (Dead Gwynne, Scraping Chunks from the Roof of My Skull respectively). Although I tend to believe this less and less I am still trying to live it. I have always had an interest in making pictures, but I was never a painter and not much of a drawer. Printmaking has always had a special draw for me. I like the process and I like the idea of creating multiples. The more I do the more comfortable it becomes and as the ink accumulates under my nails the images multiply exponentially.
