ARTIST

I am inspired by natural imagery to create work that is beautiful and timeless; that is both familiar and mysterious at the same time; that evokes imagination, passion, and awe.  Through my art, I seek to uncover the deepest emotions in people and their interaction with the natural environment.

 

I studied in sculpture in college, and after a career in investment banking, returned to my passion, art.  I work in clay, wire mesh, and most recently, encaustic paint and paper sculpture.  Encaustic painting is an ancient Greek method that uses natural bees waxes and damar resin.  The resin hardens the cooled wax and gives it a characteristic smooth, hard finish.  I paint over wood and sometimes, include paper sculpture elements, to give added texture and depth.  My work has exhibited in several galleries in Westchester, Fairfield, and New York City, and in private collections in the Tri-State area.  I practice in my studio in Rye, NY.  Exhibitions and Publications list below.  See blog for current Exhibitions.
