Artist Statement

I use irregular pattern and geometry in images using elements of diagrammatic language. Early influences were the flat simple forms and strong colors of Pop, and the clarity of minimalism. Recent shows have included a solo show at Westchester Community College's Center for Digital Arts in Peekskill ('09),  the survey "Local Growing Conditions" at the Art Exchange in White Plains ('08), and a solo show the Kent Place Gallery in Summit, NJ ('07). I received my MFA from Hunter College in 1994, and my studio is in Long Island City, NY.
