I was born in Cleveland, Ohio. My profession as a piano tuner brought me to New York City to work for Steinway & Sons in 2000. I come from a diverse family poets, actors, and visual artists, doctors, and teachers, each inspiring and supporting my artistic nature from a very young age.
I’m largely self taught except for classes with Larry Poons at the Arts Student League in Manhattan as well as classes in ceramics, sculptures and painting at Edgewood College in Madison, Wisconsin.
My works are abstract figurative assemblages. They are synthesis of feelings and ideas that establish a reality accessible to all. I am exploring the universal themes of humans. In particular I am interested in human beings search for peace and equanimity in their lives. A recurring theme would also be the healing power of the garden, and a return to Eden.
