I was born and raised in New York City in 1979. Growing up a floor above my father Ronnie Landfield’s painting studio in Tribeca, I had a very early introduction to artists and to art. I studied art and art history at Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, and upon graduating I received a fellowship to spend a month at the Vermont Studio Center. That Fall I enrolled at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. At SVA I studied painting and printmaking and graduated with a BFA with honors in 2001. After finishing school, I was invited by my professor Jack Whitten to use his studio on Lispenard street for the summer of 2001. Since then I have been working in many different studios throughout Brooklyn and Queens. I held my first two-person show at Sideshow Gallery in Brooklyn in 2002 when I was 22 years old. In 2006 I enrolled in the MFA program at Hunter College where I studied painting, color theory and art history. I also worked as a teaching assistant at Hunter. Upon receiving my MFA in January 2010, I was awarded the Tony Smith Award, (which is awarded to select graduating MFA students). In 2010 I also received the Joan Mitchell Foundation Award for Painters and Sculptors. I have exhibited my paintings in galleries and non-profit spaces throughout New York City, and in London and Beijing. My work has been reviewed in publications such as Art Monthly (UK), M Magazine, The New Criterion, and Zing Magazine. Since 2017 I have been exhibiting my works at the Findlay Gallery. My works are in many private collections throughout the metropolitan area and surroundings. In 2019 my paintings joined the collection of Memorial Sloan Kettering in NYC.
