Welcome to my studio....
I attempt to capture nature's
beauty through drawing,
manipulating wool, photography,
painting, mosaics, carving,
etching and sculpting.
I love texture and form and have
always had a deep appreciation
for any art form that is visually
stimulating. My work gives me
great pleasure. With each
project I take in the curves,
edges, angles, colors and
shadows of a subject and then
translate the experience into a
physical object that can be
displayed on a wall or table - or
simply held in one's hand.
My subjects are generally items
found in a natural setting - trees,
barns, water, stone, wood,
flowers, birds, animals, fish, etc.
With each project I strive to
produce an image that reflects
the beauty and rhythm of nature,
stirs the senses and rewards the
spirit. I believe that nature, itself,
is far more beautiful than
anything we can contrive
independently, and I remain
dedicated to preserving nature's
beauty in whatever medium I use.
My art education began with
studies at the Baum Art School
in Allentown, PA in 1963. My
interest in photography didn't
begin until 1996 when I began
taking pictures of striking objects
and scenes from which to sketch
and paint. From my first photo
shoot I was hooked. On that day
the principles of my art training,
experimental nature and
appreciation for technology
came together as one.
More recently, I've developed a
fascination for colored pencil
painting, carving and sculpting
egg shells, spinning wool into
yarn and needle felting. Each
medium has it's own properties
and each project and design
provides a new set of challenges.
