My  Fine art; found object sculpture, painting & drawing is internationally recognized and has been called “intense, spirited, far-sighted, inventive, ingeniously whimsical”. Each work is a unique creation that is highly collectible & will enhance your living space and your life.  I use a meticulous process-oriented approach to my Found-Object Sculpture, paintings and collages, and using a variety of materials; found & carved wood, metal, wire, paper,beeswax, I create lively,textural and colorful art.

With a willingness to work by hand to give new life and color to these materials, I transform them into contemporary pieces of fine art. Many of the materials I work with are collectible,vintage, or antique, and each piece is made with care given to the concept behind the work, the techniques used to create the work, and the fine finish at the end.

I also offer  Drawings on Claybord Black,  using a mixed-media technique to add colour, or drawn directly on the panel which results in strong black & white contrasts. I make oil paintings on canvas (still life and abstracts based on my gardens), brilliantly colorful Reverse oil painting on Glass (abstract), wool Tapestries, & Collage.

My Exhibition History is extensive, including the Biennale Dell Arte Contemporanea, Florence, Italy; Cologne, Germany: Albany Institute of History & Art, Museum of Art & Design, NYC; the National Sculpture Society & Brookgreen Gardens, where I won the Proskauer Prize for sculpture, Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts, Salmagundi Club,NYC. My work is found in private collections in the USA and Europe. Also, I organized and curated a very successful sculpture exhibition on our four acre garden, with nine Sculptors and Painters and eighty-four pieces of artworks.

I am a Member of the International Sculpture Society, the National Sculpture Society, the Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts, and I show my work regularly in invitational exhibitions in the Hudson Valley of New York, and online.
