You are welcome to explore some of the paintings that I have created over the past 30 years or so. I feature female figures, pears, coneflowers and masks to tell all kind of stories based on my everyday life.
Over the years, I have used photography, oil and acrylic paints, gold leaf and lately digital tools to express myself. Each medium I explore adds a new dimension to my body of work. You will find my latest and more abstract paintings under "Current Work”.
My paintings have been exhibited extensively in galleries, museums and universities in the North East of the USA, as well as Florida. They are part of corporate and private collections in the USA, Canada, Germany, Switzerland and Hong Kong.
