ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

I was born and raised in New York City and have lived in Westchester County, New York for over 20 years. Formally trained as an architect, I worked in architecture and city planning for many years. Since 2002 I have been director of The Blue Door Artist Association - a not-for-profit art organization in Westchester County, and have organized numerous exhibitions throughout the county including a number of photography shows. I have worked in a variety of media including photography, watercolor, painting, assemblage and sculpture. My interest has always been in the development and transformation of pattern and color rather than a literal depiction of subject matter. Photography for me is a way of finding the deeper and essential aspects of life inherent in recognizable forms. My work has been exhibited in museums and galleries in New York and the Northeast, including the Whitney Museum, the Neuberger Museum of Art, Leo Castelli and Allan Stone Galleries. In addition it is in many private collections including those of Roy Neuberger, Phillip Johnson and I.M.Pei. My most recent New York exhibition was at O.K. Harris.
