Artist StatementThere is a complicated world we live in every day and never see. We try to remain unaware of it, but it is there. The scientists know this microscopic world. The puzzle of the natural cosmos is limitless, enticing, ever expanding, and morphing. I am fascinated by this. The glaciers are melting. The nature of our everyday life is transfiguring. The wonder of all this change does cause unease. I am concerned about the degradation of the environment as we know it today.
I was born in New York City and grew up in New York State. A guidance counselor suggested that I apply to Rhode Island School of Design. I went for an interview and they accepted me. I spent four amazing years there. I went to New York City and worked as a textile designer and teacher of design for many years. I spent hours in the museums and galleries. Pollack, Rauschenberg, De Kooning, Warhol, Stella, Rothko, Tworkov, and Frankenthaler were some of the cogent artists working then. I saw their earliest shows. I have been living, drawing, and painting in Maryland ever since.
