My background includes training in architecture, law and music. While juggling a career in non-profit arts administration, I developed my art practice which spans a variety of disciplines from "low tech" collages to "high tech" digital design, as well as printmaking, photography and representational oil painting. My work is about observing serendipitous harmonies, unexpected moments of connection through repetition of shapes and colors occurring in nature and in our man-made environment. The submitted examples are from a series about the Con Ed plant in Astoria. Inspired by Monet's "Haystack" studies, mine are "Smokestack" studies.
Honors include: artist residencies at the Art Students League Vytlacil Program NY, Banff Centre for the Arts CANADA, Vermont Studio Center, Kala Art Institute CA (digital printing) and Blacklock Nature Preserve MN (as winner of a nature photography fellowship; four solo exhibitions at the National Arts Club.
