“To the man who loves art for its own sake, it is frequently in its least important and lowliest manifestations that the keenest pleasure is to be derived.”    - ( Sir Arthur Conan Doyle)

Another Quote: “Creativity is more than just being different. Anybody can plan weird: that’s easy. What’s hard is to be as simple as Bach. Making the simple, awesomely simple, that’s creativity.”    -  (Charles Mingus)

 My paintings and drawings often portray a subject where the use of light and space are put into question.  I like to think my approach is a simple one – showing little concern with what might happen in my work until it is realized in the process of being brought to completion.

History:  I was born in Suffern, New York. My father worked for the American Brake Shoe Co. at the time and then moved to Cambridge MA where he worked as an engineer for Polaroid for the next 20 years.  In Cambridge, with my two younger sisters Cindy and Patricia we settled into Inman Square, school, sports, art, and music. The overall philosophy around the house was that I was always some place doing something until dinner and then sometimes after dinner I would get on the train to go to a drawing class, or a trumpet lesson or get a ride to hockey practice. 

After high school I attended the Columbus College of Art and Design where I began my career.  After three years I decided to leave and take a year off.  I then enrolled at Mass College of Art, and graduated in 1983 with a fine arts degree in painting.

Today, as an Artist, Visual Arts Teacher, and Special Educator, I continue to exhibit my work and teach in the Boston area schools.
