Whether a brush is in my hand for canvas, panel, paper, furniture, walls or digital media, the magic that color generates for me still always energizes my work. Born in Hoboken and raised in northern NJ, my fascination with color began as a child . . .playing with Colorforms was an obsession.
I attended Parsons The New School in NY to study Textile Design. While there I had the opportunity to create prints for Scalamandre at Three Worlds Design, a NY Home Furnishings Design Studio. I have been painting full time for the last 20 years, and have recently launched a line of pillows for the home developed from my paintings & textile prints. Being able to use my own designs now on fabric is something I would have never thought possible.
I love it when my paintings and designs can reflect the colors and textures of the things I see in the natural world; especially the elements of the sea and sky, and the organic shapes of garden and earth. Bringing those elements into the home through paintings or fabrics keeps the connection between inside and outside alive.
My paintings have been exhibited in regional, national and museum juried shows and galleries in New England, New Jersey and New York, and are in private collections throughout the country. I live in NJ and paint and design from my studio there, and on Cape Cod, MA, overlooking the Bay.
