Artist Statement

I have studied art at Hunter College, the Art Students League and the Westchester Art Workshop. Although my primary medium is oil, I often work in watercolor, acrylic, pastel, monotype and collage. I also experiment in making my own paper to use as a ground for my pastel work as well as using the paper as a collage element. My work ranges from the figurative to the abstract and often combines aspects of both. For nearly two decades, I have maintained a studio in Peekskill and am a member of that community's growing artist district. I was a member of Gallery 44 North in Peekskill, a founding member of Gallerie JJENTH, a member of the visual arts committee of the Paramount Center for the Arts in Peekskill organizing several juried exhibitions, and am on the faculty of the Putnam Arts Council. I also teach multimedia painting at Heritage Hills in Somers, oil painting for the Yorktown Parks and Recreation Dept., watercolor painting for the Croton Recreation Dept., as well as portrait painting in my studio. I have exhibited work in galleries and public spaces and have paintings in many private and public collections here and in Europe.
