Syracuse, New York, United States
I am currently a student in an MFA Poetry program in the United States. I plan to continue on towards a doctorate and eventually teach poetry and poetry criticism at the university level.
I am currently unmarried. I have a loving girlfriend of three years whom I am separated from right now because she is studying in Australia.
I collect masks; I find that their representations of the face allow for expressions of humanity that are hauntingly beautiful, and for my writing, very inspirational.
What I like most about Novica:
Novica allows me to support an artist directly. This not only gives provenance to each piece of art, it also adds a sense of humanity to the alienation experienced through global transactions.

Testimonial for Emmanuel Nyadedzor
Today I received the "Brilliant Mind" mask from Mr. Nyadedzor. I was surprised by how quickly I received this beautiful piece. When I took the mask out of the box, I was immediately struck by the finish. I have a large antique African mask collection and this is my first "new" one. Mr. Nyadedzor's attention to detail in both the metal work and color-finish accentuates the beauty of this mask. I am proud to own one of your works. Knowing the provenance of the mask is wonderful, and I hope you continue to create beautiful art for the world to buy. Thank you.
Testimonial for Made Tresna
I received the Happy-Sad face mask today from Mr. Tresna. I received this beautiful piece of art very quickly and I was amazed at the careful nature of the packaging involved. Upon opening the package, I was amazed at how seamlessly Mr. Tresna has juxtaposed happiness and sadness together. This masks truly captures the full spectrum of humanity and I feel honored to have this piece in my mask collection.
Testimonial for Ampai Rungsrisookjit
I received my "Akha Wisdom" cotton letter holder today; I received it very quickly after ordering. The photo on Novica does not do this piece justice. The embroidery is done very carefully and very artistically. This four pocket holder has pockets large enough to hold Netflix DVDs. It is a welcome addition to my home and is a wonderful way to store both incoming and outgoing mail in an organized fashion. Thank you for Mrs. Rungsrisookjit for the time you put into this wonderful piece; I am glad that you have found Novica so I could make this purchase.
Testimonial for Nueng Pakdee
I received an orange-brown leather riddle bracelet today created by Mr. Pakdee. This piece was not only packaged with love, it was made with utmost care and is of exemplary quality. For this, I thank you Mr. Pakdee. Your stellar craft is amazing and I am glad that you found Novica so I could buy from you. I am completely satisfied with this purchase and I will purchase again from this artisan.
