My work strikes a balance of old and new. A newspaper review once labeled my style as, "Classical Contemporary" (Lowell Sun, Whistler House Museum of Art). Forefront in my work is a focus on rich surface texture. In the 1980's and 1990's, the medium of monotype allowed me to manifest classical properties of balance and volume, light and shadow. My more recent paintings resemble wall painting or fresco, using a technique of paint over plaster, on a base of linen, cotton, or panel. This medium allows me the potential to create large scale work.
Important to me is the ability to explore ideas in my art using a method that produces a rich surface patina. I draw inspiration from both European and Asian traditions, as well as the accomplishments of many twentieth and twenty-first century artists.
I have lived and worked in New York City, the Boston area, and now have a studio here in my native Los Angeles.
