-Uptown girl or Downtown girl?
I was born a downtown girl. I remember eating my first piece of
sushi when I was three on the roof of our Bowery apartment building.
-Where do you live and why?
The Poconos, because it is cheap and I can make my art in peace.
Jupiter, Florida because it is an escapist fantasy land, and NYC
because it is necessary.
My girlfriend makes the best eggs in the city. Brunch is better half naked.-Favorite place for cocktails?
Anywhere that makes a perfect gin martini. L'express makes a note worthy one, ...oh and and Petes Candy Store for their 'Indochine cocktail' gin, ginger liqueur, fresh lime, soda water and sugar. Yum. I am a gin girl.
-Tell us what you do?
I am an artist. I like to create huge murals and puff paint
everything I can get my hands on. I am also deeply immersed in an
ongoing everlasting film collaboration with Sarah Stuve. Our
experimental short film 'My Dead Brain' will be screening at MIX 22
festival, beginning November 20.

A complete online series of 'How To' videos available on
Howcast.com, Hulu and Joost. (visit Howcast.com to view my "Webbie"

series of works on canvas called 'Eggs' and am about to begin
producing a new film called 'The Future Perfect', updates and

I was Cleopatra without a doubt.
-What is a starlet?
Judy,Rosalind, Joan, Tippi....oooooh and Julie Andrews, I've had a crush on
