I attended Parsons School of Design and received my degree in Fine Arts in 1958.
In the late 70's I developed my present form of painting on maple wood and created a line of wearable art, Wood Images.
The shapes can vary from round, hexagonal or square to hand tooled geometric forms. I enhance the work with semi precious stones and rare beads. I finish the painted wood surface with several coats of lacquer.
I show my jewelry in top art shows across the country and have sold in museum gift shops, including but not limited to, the LA Moca, and the de Young Museum of San Francisco.
In 1975 I developed the form of painting on maple wood spheres. I found that
working in the round presented new compositional challenges not found in the two dimensional art form. The spheres range in size from 4” diameter to 24” diameter .
The paintings are both abstract and representational, where spatial and color relationships are constantly changing depending on the positioning of the sphere.
My work has been collected privately for over four decades.
