About Me


My Experience

  •  I am a multi-media artist and  curator/publisher at  (HAF).  I have been busy in the studio with several installation projects which include working in the unsustainable material, plastics.  For the past three years, HAF has focused on international artists who are transforming the environmental hazard into works of art, with the hope of bringing awareness to our society of the damages this medium causes.
