An art life of over 4 decades has taken my work through many phases. Painter, Mixed-Media, Sculpture, Installation, Digital Prints and Lithographs -- all have been exhibited and garnered grants.
The flood of Irene and the hurricane Sandy set me back 2 years: my studio has been rebuilt. I am rediscovering oils and excited to explore new themes. "Tsunami:Loss" and "Mountains, Barriers and Poppy Fields" all encaustic, were my last solo shows.Now, after disasters of my own, I am teasing and testing: color, memory, and the unconscious, mixing abstraction and realism. I am revisiting whimsy as I did in the sculptures of "Family Portraits". My journey goes on as new ideas are explored.
