Home About Paintings Sculpture Works on Paper Exhibitions

I am a visual artist who works in various media - sculpture, painting, and graphics. For many years, I was a Scientific Illustrator at Schepens Eye Research Institute, Harvard Medical School, a scientific research foundation in Boston. I currently devote myself to my own interests in painting, graphics and sculpture. Until recently, I operated Bird Street Studio on Martha’s Vineyard. I currently maintain studios in Palm Springs, CA and Cohasset, MA.

I have traveled extensively, as both an international artist-in-residence as well as a working visual artist, to destinations in Morocco, Greece, France and the USA. I have taken advantage of these opportunities to experience widely different experiences of culture, art and people. The effect on my work has been positive and exciting. The products of my residencies have been the subject of exhibitions in Morocco, Paris and New Orleans. 

Like many artists, I work in series. Each successive piece evolves from the previous and, for me, this process encourages a natural flow of concept, technique and product. I am currently working on a series of works on paper, chiefly artist books and prints, utilizing modern and traditional techniques acquired during my travels.

My work has been exhibited in galleries and museums internationally and is included in the collections of of The Historic New Orleans Collection, The College Book Art Association, The Franklin Furnace Artists' Book Collection at Pratt Institute and at the Museum of Modern Art.
