How do you feel about being a part of “GO BROOKLYN ART”?

“I am super excited and stressed out! I hope a lot of folks come out to see what artists in PLG are up to. It is my first open studio experience, so I feel the same anxiety I have before a dinner party. I am impressed by the scale of the project but like to look past the ‘competition’ aspect. For me, it is about creating relationships in communities together around artistic practice and appreciation. I am very much looking forward to the Go Brooklyn Art weekend and the new people I will meet.”

Is there anything about your PLG neighborhood that gives you inspiration to create?

“I am a landscape painter and living so close to Prospect Park has been amazing. I am there at least several times a week. I also enjoy getting to know folks in the community. There is a lot of energy here as well as a healthy dose of chaos.”
