I was born and raised in New York and the City grid is a strong influence because I love the noise, rhythm and contemporary urban vibe in Metro NY.My work is contemporary collage. I hand paint papers and organize color blocks into geometric patterns. Many works are mixed media and include drawing.
See works in series titled METRO (the city), COLOR MEMORY (Sedona AZ), GRIDS (the square), CACTUS (the Saguaro), 5×5 (cut and paste) and JAZZ BABIES (music). My paintings and collages are included in private, hotel, corporate and museum collections in the US, Europe, Japan, Canada, Mexico, India, NZ and the Republic of Singapore.
Education: School of Art, Syracuse University (Syracuse, NY), New York University (NY, NY), and Hunter College, CUNY (NY, NY, B.A. 1973). Post-graduate: Pratt Manhattan Graphics (NY, NY), the Center for Contemporary Graphics (Norwalk, CT), The Women’s Studio Workshop (Rosendale, NY) and Art New England (Bennington College, VT).
