In my work I explore the connection between human experience and the places which we inhabit.
Connecting us through time, the layering process of the work creates a depth - akin to time and history. The juxtaposition of antique map images and expressionist paint handling create a
sense of "inexplicable poetry" .....not unlike the Symbolist poets and the Luminist painters.... fragmentary forms & veiled meanings which speak to us on an emotional level..... where light and color touch our common humanity. I was born in 1961, NYC
I studied at the School of Visual Arts in New York City (1979 -1983) receiving a BFA in Studio Arts. I also studied at The Art Students' League (NYC, 1978-79) and The Robert Blachburn Printmaking Workshop (1979 -81). I would go on to live and work for a time in Los Angeles and San Francisco, eventually settling in Santa Fe, New Mexico in 1990.
Over the course of more than 30 years, the work has been widely exhibited in the U.S. from New York City, to Los Angeles, Seattle, Austin and many more cities. The work is in many private and public collections including The Albuquerque Museum, Albuquerque, NM - The Museum of the Southwest, Midland, TX. - The Springfield Museum of Art, Springfield, MA. - The Knoxville Museum of Art, Knoxville, TN - The Longview Museum of Fine Art; Longview, TX and others.
My work has been generously featured in many periodicals and books including New American Paintings, Art Journey New Mexico, Southwest Art, American Art Collector, Design & Architecture and others.
