I began freelancing with Saks Fifth Avenue in 1996, my senior year at Parsons School of Design. I like to call the ten years I spent regularly working there "Visual Bootcamp", because it was a rigorous production schedule, and I learned so much! This photo above is from 2012 when my artwork was featured in their celebrated 5th Avenue windows for the second time. Following are more photos of that occasion, as well as the first time I had my still life paintings featured in the 5th Avenue windows during Armory Week in 2006, and the signature toile fabric I illustrated in 2005, part of which ran as a full page advertisement in the NY Times.
