About

I was born in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, Home of Little League Baseball. By the time I was six, I knew I would be an artist living in Greenwich Village. My work began as a series of paper collages at RISD’s 1969 European Honors Program at Palazzo Cenci in Rome. I shared a studio with several architects working with systems to avoid taste. The goal was to avoid the formulaic, the comfortable, the simplistic, the “popular”…. allowing the random and accidental to occur and to encourage chance relationships that generate tension and energy. Discovery was the only intention as I began the work. These collages are simply semaphores. They lead the viewer into metaphor. They trigger associations, cue sense memories, and evoke emotion. I continue to make these groupings for no reason other than the pleasure that the process brings. The process helps me chart my position in the universe.
