"In my work, I attempt to stay as
spontaneous as possible while
leaving very little to chance. Direct
metal (i.e. welding& forging) is the
technique that allows me this
freedom. Natural form, including
the figure in dance, are my main
concerns. The quest is not to
emulate a particular form, but to
reach for the essence in 'perfect' (or not so perfect) spatial relationships.
Although the work may appear 'rough hewn' there is an almost religious
need to stay true to its language. A language that has been developed over
a lifetime, first in painting and now in sculpture."
My art education began quite early, from High School of Music and Art, to Brooklyn Museum Art School to Pratt Institute.
I also have industrial experience in welding and fabrication. I have shown in numerous galleries, outdoor installations,
and museums in the New York area, including the Brooklyn Museum, Staten Island Museum, Snug Harbor Cultural Center,
Woodstock Artists Association and Museum, Opus 40 and the Chautauqua Institution. In addition I have been the recipient of
several grants including the 1999 Lucile Blanch Biennial Sculpture Award-WAAM.
