A string picture is constructed by gluing individual pieces of thread (cotton, silk, linen and rayon) to a board.

 I received a BFA in painting in 1975 at The Cooper Union School of Art. I have received Artist Fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, The Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Foundation, The New Jersey State Council on the Arts and the Ludwig Vogelstein Foundation. In 1992 I traveled to Mexico as a Fulbright Fellow to meet and talk shop with fellow yarn painters among the Huichol, an indigenous people working in a similar medium.

I am represented by Francis M Naumann Fine Art http://www.francisnaumann.com/
