"Finding a unity between texture and form, the old and the new, the pain and the joy is my thing. A metropolitan setting in which we discern the layers of history is provocative and intellectually stimulating for me. People looking and evaluating each other, hiding, showing off."
"Born and raised in New York City, its tempo has always been part of my life. I was educated in the NYC public school system, graduated from New York University and studied at the Arts Students League. This city has always had a fresh cutting edge appeal to me. I’ve lived in Brazil and Italy but always returned.
After a productive professional life, I am pursuing a second career as an abstract artist. Painting for me is a continuing exploration and reflection of life.
Every painting I do is based on reality. I am looking at the world and painting what I see, using color and form – not filtered through a mental concept. The artwork expresses a familiar world in other dimensions, a world that we live in and absorb daily, but do not always perceive."
