My work is an abstracted expression of space, color, form and movement. I find visual Inspiration in nature, art and design. My life experiences and perceptions are emotionally present in my work. Reflection, movement, interaction and solitude generate a spiritual awareness, extending my sources of inspiration beyond present time and place.
The color palette I use tends toward blues, greens, and other cool tones with splashes of warm, vibrant color. I often paint thinly in areas, increasing thickness for contrast and emphasis. I might integrate fabric, paper, glass, buttons, beads and other materials to increase texture, complexity and interest. My porcelain ceramics are delicate objects that are both sculptural and practical. I am currently focusing on acrylic painting and ceramics.
I am a graduate of Pratt Institute, NYC, and UC Berkeley, CA. I practiced architecture and then became an organizational futurist/strategist before turning full time to fine art. From New York by way of California, I now live in New England and spend time in the subtropics in winter. This environmental transition never fails to reinvigorate my senses and influence my work.
