I have been creating art, mostly abstract , for as long as I can remember. From early childhood, when my parents took me to Art Museums , I was particularly drawn to the large beautiful abstractions by Kandinsky, Miro, Picasso, Klee and other modern masters. I enjoy using various mediums: acrylic on canvas and paper, collages, constructions, leaded glass and furniture design. Found objects and photography also play an important role in my work. Sculpture has been a major focus in my artwork as well. Recently I completed a limestone and marble sculpture installation entitled 'Meditation Circle' on permanent display at the new Sculpture Meadow Park in Yonkers, New York on the shore of the Hudson River.
I often invite synchronicity to guide me in the creative process because it allows me to follow a path not yet explored. I have always been fascinated by outer space and in subjects ranging from the cosmos to the microscopic, mysteries of the ancient world and the mysteries of today. The origins of life and the unknown have inspired me and opened my mind to new possibilities of expression and creativity. Much of my work reflects an evolving spiritual awareness.
I attended the School of Visual Arts in New York City, studied interior design at Parson's School of Design, and Faceted/stained glass at Rolph's Stained Glass Studio.
My art work has been exhibited internationally. I have had numerous one person shows and group shows in museums and galleries including the Bronx Museum of the Arts, the Hudson River Museum, the Katonah Museum of Art, Washington Square East Galleries, Leaver House in NYC.
A quotation from Albert Einstein's 'What I Believe' resonates with my personal philosophy:
The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science'.
