Statement

Although 1st and foremost I am an artist, I am also an illustrator, writer and a curator. My work has been exhibited nationally and internationally: Martha Jackson Gallery, New York City, Museum of Modern Art's lending library, Gallery Moos, Toronto; Galeria Vandres, Madrid, Spain; La Jolla Museum of Art, CA; Newport Harbor Art Museum, CA and more recently, Nagasaki Museum, Japan; Pyong Taek City, Korea; Chonburi University, Bangkok, Thailand; Museo del Puerto, Ensenada, Mexico; Fine Art Museum, Yerevan, Armenia and the Atelier Gronard, Paris, France, etc.

After completing a BFA at The Cooper Union in NYC, I worked on sectional bronzes. These soon evolved into colorful wall-sized kinetic constructions, painted columns revolving at speeds as low as 1/4 rpm.

After moving to Los Angeles, my focus changed to painting and has remained so to the present. A current series, titled Flamenco, relates to my 9-year involvement with that discipline. These pieces do not illustrate the dance but rather are abstractions that spiral and swirl and try to catch the rhythm, energy and passions that it embodies.

My work is in the public collections of Sterling Forest Gardens, New York City, Warner Bros. Records, Burbank, CA., City Investing, New York City, Seimans Pacesetter Systems, Los Angeles, Redwood City Public Library, CA., the Perkins Building, Glendale, CA. and many others.

As an art writer for a non-profit organization for more than 10 years, I have feature articles published in various catalogs. A book titled, Poem Into Life, published by XLibris features a suite of paintings that I illustrated for that poem and was made available in bookstores in September 2008. With a commission from Addie Ripple publishing, I also illustrated 3 children's books, The Witch Who Whistled, The Mouse in the Magic Forest and I am a Picture Book.

Among the exhibitions that I have worked on as co-curator are: Angels, Ancestors and Spirit Guides and Quarks to Quasars.
