I strive for the forms I create to engage with the rhythms of life and the existence of all living matter. My art is ultimately an expressive representation of nature's beauty in its primary elements, shapes, and forms. My digital creations allow me to connect to symmetry and to the mathematical patterns found in snowflakes, flowers, plants, as well as to the detailed patterns of the microscopic world. My oil paintings consist of various forms of concentric circles that are reminiscent of tree rings, or ripples in water.  The list of nature’s forms is endless, but it is a list that I draw on to connect to the world and its sensual embodied forms.
     I  was born into a family of artists and have always been working in one medium or another. My love for the materials of art have led me on a path of exploration of techniques where I studied color theory, painting, printmaking and art history.  I attended Philadelphia College of Art, School of Visual Arts, Parsons School of Design and the Brooklyn Museum School. In my series, the Unknown Species, my signature style of painting developed from my experimentation using oil paint and alkyd together.  Although I have branched out to digital art, including animation, I am a painter first and love the experience of creating one o a kind works of art.
     I have been inspired by the natural beauty and artist communities around me. In the past twenty years my work has flourished and I have had the opportunities to exhibit throughout the Hudson Valley NY, NYC, and California.  My work has been recognized on the worldwide stage by being chosen to participate in the 55th Venice Biennale, Procidamerica (Italy), Art Southampton, The LA Art Fair, Miami Context and the current 59th Venice Biennale
     In the past year I have moved from New York to Northampton, MA and have begun to show my work in New England as well as participating in another international opportunity. My animation videos will be showing at the European Cultural Center in the 59th Venice Biennale at the Palazzo Bembo. The William Baczek Fine Art Gallery in Northampton, MA is representing my digital work and I am thrilled to be part of a group exhibition In Praise Of Form in Boston with my oil paintings. 
    Making art during the pandemic has made me realize the importance of living a creative life.  We possess an inherent affinity with the forms that are part of the natural world.  I believe that connections to the beginning of our existence pull us towards shapes of eggs, and cellular shapes that exist within us and around us, all part of our existence and deep rooted memories.  I surround myself with ovals and circles.  I choose life as my guide and praise form for contradicting the horrors of this historic time of climate change, pandemic and confusion in politics.
