My work is an abstracted expression of space, color, form and movement. Inspired by design, both natural and man-made, my perceptions find visual expression in my work. Reflection, interaction, movement and solitude generate a spiritual awareness and extend my sources of inspiration beyond life experiences into other times and places.
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 porcelain.
I am an architecture graduate from both Pratt Institute and UC Berkeley. The practice architecture lead me to become 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 winters in the subtropics. This environmental transition never fails to reinvigorate my senses and influence my work.
