My art is informed by natural forms, patterns and rhythms as well as color and shapes moving through space and time. This is perhaps why many of my works become multiples. The individual image is not alone, but forms a relationship with its peers, giving it another dimension. I am most excited by my recent oil paintings which poured from me after years of absorbing the morning sun hitting Field Farm.
I have participated in solo and group shows in Beacon, NY, Washington, DC, Philadelphia, and Princeton, NJ. My collages were represented by Art for Media ; some were featured on Madigan Men (TV series Fall 2000, with Gabriel Byrne), Sex and the City, as well as various commercials.
I have been writing.
