Growing up in Brooklyn, paint and brushes in my grandfather’s store and The Dutch Boy (as in Dutch Boy paints) were my favorite toys:Illustrations in the Saturday Evening Post and The Ladies’ Home Journal were my museum. By the time I actually set foot into the Brooklyn Museum, it was to discover the many ways a 2B pencil could translate line into form. The Big Ideas of mid 20th century art were distilled for me in Hunter College where Robert Motherwell opened doors to art and history that still resonate. A graduate degree in Fine Art from Hunter College and a lifetime of travel exploring creative expression in nearly every continent informs the lexicon of my work. My technique derives from the experience of working in various media including and photography, papermaking, and collage.
I am interested in relationships between people and objects and how that relationship can shape a visual narrative.
