Specialty: Collage and Drawing
I make art because I believe art can add an enrichment to life and that it is a universal way to communicate ideas and feelings. The process of fragmentation and transformation is a recurrent theme for me. My concerns are with materials and how they relate to the idea of the work. I also work with book art, fiber art and found objects. I find that collage is a process that suits me, it requires planning but it is also a spontaneous and open ended way for me to work and can lead to surprises and the unexpected.
I live and work in Santa Fe, NM. Born in Brooklyn, NY, I studied drawing and painting at the Art Students League in Manhattan. For me, it began with with drawing the human figure. Living in New York City was a life changing experience to visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art , just two of the great museums that are there. I have exhibited locally in Santa Fe, Taos, Albuquerque, and Farmington . Galleries include Axle Contemporary, The Museum of Art , Santa Fe Community Gallery, Stables Gallery and The Center for Contemporary Arts. Nationally, I have exhibited in New York, Chicago, New Jersey, Colorado and California.
