“My sculpture comes from a need to communicate timeless, universal issues, emotions, and sensualities from a deeply personal level.In my work, elements don’t have to necessarily go together but when combined provide a new visual experience. I want to give my audience new experiences, sometimes pleasant even humorous and sometimes disturbing. My current method of working with wood is laminating several pieces together then carving a pre-conceived image. I have been using scrap pieces, discarded from projects from wood shop machine demonstrations to make my laminations. Experiments in laminating stone adds new dimensions to my search for form with meaning.”
I was born in New York City, graduated from Cooper Union, furthered my education at The Education Alliance, The School of Visual Arts as well as classes at University of North Florida and Florida State College, Jacksonville. Workshops with Charles Reid, Don Andrews, Robert Leedy and Mary Whyte, added to my painting education. My passion for art in all its facets is what I am all about.
