I have taken to painting upstairs in the gallery lately

As opposed to the basement, better light, more room.

First actual post with any forethought, welcome to Xmas eve 2011

So I turned 42 last week. I couldn’t say my life is going directly accordning to plan, but everything has been looking up. My daughter is 15 months in Dec, my other girls are growing at an alrming rate, I am finding more time (or making more time) to make my own art. The gallery I started last year is progressing, and I am learning the ins and outs of marketing and promotion. I am helping to get other worthy artists work out into public view the way I wished someone had done for me when I was starting out. The tattoo shop can almost run itself  (thankfully it’s right next to the gallery and I have 2 great partners). Everything is moving along, and the only struggle seeems to be finding balance with everything. I am changing my website into a blog (thanks to Michelle), so my audience (whomever that may be) can get an inside look at anything from my family to my process, the different projects I get to work on, to simply an occasional look into my sketchbook. I want to thank all my supporters, from my family and friends, to my patrons, fans and artistsic peers. None of any of what I have done could have been done alone. Carry on.

Welcome to the latest incarnation of my website!

new work in progress

It is in blog form so I can keep you updated in a timely manner of things going on in Casa del Suerte, The Urban Folk Art® Gallery, and Brooklyn Tattoo®. Feel free to comment away, and ask questions.

Thanks for all you support, and thanks for playing along!


and don’t forget to find me on facebook along with the gallery, and Tattoo shop

Pop Up Piano 2011 Charity Project



I was chosen chosen to paint a piano for Sing For Hope’s Pop Up Piano project. 88 Pianos hit the streets in all boroughs last summer, and were available for the public to play from June 18, to July 2nd. At the end of the run, the pianos were donated to community centers, schools, and other such deserving organizations and groups. Some were auctioned off for charity. Adam Suerte’s piano was placed at Pier 1 in Brooklyn Bridge Park right by the water, with the Brooklyn Bridge and the manhattan skyline as its backdrop. His was also one of 8 of the 88 that was chosen for auction.


Here’s an interview the people at Brooklyn Bridge Park did with me
