Artist's Statement/Bio

Peace begins when expectations end. Each of us is profoundly different. We are all on our own path. I choose to walk the path of creativity. Stepping into my studio inspires me. A garden inspires me. The ocean inspires me. Flowers, color, fish, birds and stars all inspire me. Subtle layers and hidden memories peek through my thoughts. In creating something out of nothing, I seek a balance of complex-simplicity that fires my imagination and lights up my soul. I find the exploration of non-objective abstraction deeply gratifying. My work is a continual evolutionary journey of discovery and I believe I am simply along for the ride.

Ithaca, NY is where I was born and raised. My father was a cartoonist at heart and an architect by profession. His discipline and ceaseless work ethic strongly influenced my own approach to my work. I currently maintain my studio practice on Martha’s Vineyard.

In 1981 I graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with a Bachelor Degree of Fine Arts. My work is widely represented in private and corporate collections throughout the United States and overseas.
