ARTIST'S STATEMENT

 

My work relates to preservation, regardless of the series. The art has a certain ambiguity to it, the viewer relates to the image and places it in his mind to a specific location. The actual original setting may have nothing to do with the viewers’ preconception, and may not physically exist except in my imagination. I portray imagery of the planet's fragile beauty, questioning our culture that promotes instant gratification while ignoring evolving consequences. I feel obligated to work addressing these issues.

By working this way, I stay true to my convictions, while possibly raising awareness after viewers realize that these are not just pretty paintings, the beauty is only skin deep; a reminder that it’s urgent to understand what is real and what is fabricated.

I began my current series depicting harmful algae blooms because of the ongoing issues facing Barnegat Bay close to my home. The work displays my interpretation of existing toxic algae species.

I offer acrylic paintings, combining media to attain intricate textures using an accumulation of thin layers of color and delicate line work created with thread.

A Signature Artist Member of the Noyes Museum of Art, Oceanville, NJ, I'm also represented by several galleries.
