“I draw and paint what I see around me. My urban scenes abstracted and imaginary feed on the skylines and street bustle of major cities, New York foremost. The natural landscapes derive from travels and neighborhood vistas.
In my paintings, I use oils with palette knives, brushes, rags, oil bars, whatever, to build up a rich play of color and texture in these expressionist works, which are mostly on paper. I have filled numerous sketchbooks and have other drawings in ink, wash, graphite, pastel, and conte crayon. Besides urban and natural landscapes, my subject matter includes figurative work, still lifes, and non-objective work. I took painting and other courses in the Open Program of the Corcoran College of Art and Design, the last several years working with Washington artist William Christenberry. In 1996, I was awarded the Linda Rosenbaum Scholarship for ‘talent and artistic excellence.’
My work is in collections in the Washington area, in New York and San Francisco, in Los Angeles, Aspen, Boston and elsewhere in New England.
I have worked in the environmental field for more than 30 years, and have a degree in architecture from the University of Michigan.”
