Statement, Biography and Resume'

Statement,   2018

   Like a reporter I record the time and place of my wanderings around Upstate New York and New England. I find places and scenes of fascination: quiet woodlands or gas stations, farmlands or industrial sites, places I see in passing, sometimes from the corner of my eye often easily overlooked by others. This is where I find beauty. This is where I find the sublime.

Biography 2018

b. Cambridge, MA, 1961. I grew up in Newton and graduated Newton North High School in1979.  I earned a B.A. from Bennington College in 1984 majoring in painting and sculpture, I continued to study Sculpture and earned an M.F.A from SUNY Albany in 1988. Early on I had some academic training with R.H. Ives Gammell, I learned sight-size cast drawing, and in essence how to see. At Bennington College and Suny Albany my work remained figurative but was based on symbology and narrative. After graduate school I continued to make and exhibit sculpture, I worked freelance in public sculpture fabrication, sign making, architectural model making, and many other sculptural applications. By the mid 1990’s  building restoration with a specialty in traditional window restoration provided a living for many years. I had settled in Cambridge, marrying and having two daughters. I has stopped making art during this period and around 2012 returned to paint landscapes with the training I had as a youngster.  My life at fifty was full, as was my experience, and this all contributes to my work today.
