Responding to external stimuli since 1965

 

Born to craftsmen, I grew up surrounded by artists and makers. I was always encouraged to work with my hands, to observe the world with fresh vision, to experiment and to enjoy the successes as much as the failures.

I cut my teeth in Philadelphia working behind the scenes for performance artists and stage productions. By trade, I am a gilder and frame maker for artists, designers, collectors, and museums. The art I create is mostly project based. Painted, delineated, carved, photographed, or printed, I produce bodies of work based on either a singular or series of ideas and inspirations
