After receiving credits toward a Doctor of Arts at SUNY Albany in 1993, I taught for 3 years and continue private lessons to students. I work mainly in oil paints and exterior cement sculptures. I am a full -time oil painter, sculptor, interior designer and gallery owner of "Window to the Garden." My current Gallery is located in a converted barn in my home in Mayfield, New York and I live there with my two children.
Recently, I have been working on a more contemporary approach and the idea of landscape painting and the garden. It has been a process of painting that is about subtraction as well as the addition of paint. These “contemporary landscapes” are about a feeling of “getting lost” within the colors as well creating depth from the subtraction of paint. I have limited my palette to specific colors for my recent work, and I am constantly experimenting with how they work together in subject matter as well as the medium.
