Although my paintings seem abstract, each has a subject derived from nature, felt and observed. I hope to arrive at an “essence” strong enough to evoke a shared recognition with the viewer. I work in oils, pastels, watercolors and drawing.
I studied painting in New York with Vaclav Vytlacil and Rufino Tamayo and painting, drawing and art history with Kurt Roesch at Sarah Lawrence College where I received my BA in painting. I also studied etching and engraving with Stanley William Hayter and Japanese wood block printing with Bill Paden. I have exhibited at multiple galleries in New York, Massachusetts and across the country, and was assistant curator of exhibitions at the Hudson River Museum.
