As a native New Yorker, my art roots are informed by a vast variety of rhythmic sounds and visual stimuli. I am especially drawn to Jazz, Rock and Latin music from the 1950’s through the 1960’s. By 1980, after painting figuratively for ten years, I discovered abstraction. After that I began a serious study and practice as a non-figurative painter.
My paintings employ a methodology that is determined by my past breakthroughs and successes. I have developed a personal lexicon of calligraphy, broken geometric forms, spatial relationships, and color.
Recently I have added elements of collage in order to expand my visual language. Using collage and textural mediums has taken my art beyond the painterly and gestural marks of my earlier work. My aspiration is to produce work that conveys power, subtlety and beauty.
