I am moved to make art in order to share some of the beauty I see around me. Beauty, not just in the traditionally beautiful such as sunsets and mountains, but beauty found in random compositions which the human eye imposes — juxtapositions of colors, shapes and lines. To me great paintings are akin to […]

My ceramics are part of an ongoing attempt to bring a drawn line into the physical world. The unusual techniques have been developed over years of studio practice. These include an extensive repertoire of hand mixed glazes and combined elements in multiple firings. The bases of these pieces are made by traditional slip casting in […]

In the metaphor and beauty of a nest, an empty boat, a bird in flight, trees in a forest, or the Hudson River I seek to bring the wondrous into focus. My art work expresses the the visible and the invisible. I have been painting empty boats as symbols of limitless possibility for 8 or […]

I have always been fascinated with all things small. I’m not sure why but there is something very seductive about miniatures: the perfect lines of a delicate captain’s chair. A Bombay chest of drawers with bowed curves and swirls of real wood grain. Or a deeply ornate, 6-arm chandelier with bronzed elegance and antique finishing. […]

Combining found elements with those fashioned by my own hand, my work encompasses two- and three-dimensional collage as well as sculptural objects. Infused with a rich sense of history, the essence of my work lies in the age-old struggle between nature and the man-made industrial world. My challenge is to convey that sense of conflict […]

Inspired by artists Naum Gabo, Alexander Calder, and Raider Nelson and mathematician/model builder Theodore Olivier, I continue in 2017 to use straight lines to produce three dimensional curves. One present focus is the suspension of multiple shapes at once. Website

Using traditional and innovative techniques in my work, I juxtapose paint and wax on wood surfaces with found remnants. These artifacts of personal histories are essential to my artistic process, […]

Mark-making is, for me, a meditative state. I love manipulating materials—both conventional and unorthodox. No matter whether I am working in paint or pencil, with thread or with found objects, my goal is to create moments of deep feeling—often inspired by the passing of time and my own childhood memories—through an economy of shapes and […]

Abstract paintings have always spoken to me the loudest. The world that surrounds us is a source of both limitations and freedoms. We are part of nature. The threads lead outward to the surrounding environment and inward to what sustains us, what satisfies us, becomes perches we inhabit, fences we keep, escapes we make. They […]

My paintings and drawings are born of curiosity about the world traveled, coupled with the world I can create. Besides responding to architecture, I am also responding to cultural similarities and model patterns. New York’s architecture provokes and induces thought; emotions are aroused by looming buildings, sharp corners and sloping skylines. These all speak to […]

The Communist era during which I grew up squeezed an imprint on me, a method of perceiving and living in the surrounding world, which in turn defined a method of creating. Getting involved in the New York art scene in 1988 “opened a window” in my soul. My first solo show in New York was […]

I am interested in visual subjects exploring authenticity and identity, feminism and destruction. I am curious about the constructs of creativity in bilingual cultures and the limits of language in different cultures. I am disturbed by injustice, and my response was to create a depiction of language’s potential ambiguities. Language is power, and lack of […]

I have always been drawn to the ancient art of mosaic, perhaps because I find great beauty in brokenness. The light refracted through tiny shards of glass and those fragments painstakingly surrendered one by one, can together evoke a certain harmony and wholeness. Even though I begin with a vision that is uniquely mine, I […]

I love to work in many media and genres, often more than one at the same time. The process of making absorbs me. The feel of paper, paint, pencil and brush delights me. I feel lucky that my occupation is work and play at the same time. I recently published “The Migraine Book”, a collection […]

As an artist, I have always found myself split between two disciplines: photography and mixed media. My photographic images reflect the light, forms, and textures in world around me. They have been my eye looking outward. My mixed media work, on the other hand, has been my eye looking inward, reflecting my personal history and […]

 My world is of earth and spirit. Nature is at once a deep source of inspiration, and a comforting healer. More than anything, the quality of light which radiates from and about the subject is what I am moved to capture. I try to express the essence – the spirit of a place, a person, […]
