Reinvention has been the driving force in my Art and life.

Redefining forms and concepts of space; solidly rooting forms, yet allowing them to have a sense of floating;

creating interconnections with mass and atmosphere.

I grew up in New York City, immersed in the Art World by a father who ran of an Old Masters Gallery on 57th street.  As a child, going to the Metropolitan Museum of Art with my father. My father was often in the back rooms of the Museum, and it was there that I was introduced to the mechanics of Fine Art, the craft beyond the inspiration.

At the age of 14, I apprenticed to a fine arts framer learning the art of gilding and hand carving frames.

I  started college at New York University as an Art History major but quickly shifted to Fine Art and Sculpture as I have always worked and thought in 3-dimension.

Two years later I was invited to study under Dale Eldred at Kansas City Art Institute. Working as an artist in the midwest of the United States, my eyes were opened to “Prairie” spatial concepts of size and mass. This started my fascination with floating shapes.

I returned east for graduate school at Rhode Island School of Design and was fortunate to receive a graduate fellowship. While there I worked on a series of boat pieces which were dream driven: interesting that I later sailed the South Pacific and then Central America including the Panama Canal for 2.5 years on my own boat.

In California, I became involved with special effects for film and commercials. I worked in Japan as head of Specialized Theme Construction for Sumitomo Corporation and as a Creative Producer for Universal Studios.

I’ve been fortunate to have worked as a fine artist, art restorer, sculpture teacher, creative producer, and sundry other careers. My calling has always guided me back to Art.
