In the 1990s, I took early retirement from a position in Philadelphia in order to pursue an interest in art. I began to study with individual instructors and in selected classes and workshops at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the Main Line Art Center, the Woodmere Art Museum and at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in Deer Isle, Maine.
I paint mostly in oil and in both abstract and representational styles. Nature in various forms is a powerful inspiration, particularly coastal Maine where I spend some of each summer.
My work has been in a variety of juried exhibitions, including those at the Woodmere Art Museum, Fellowship of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, and the Philadelphia Sketch Club. I have participated in invitational and group exhibitions at, among others, ArtForms Gallery, Krasdale Gallery in New York, Seitz Gallery in Harrisburg and White Swan Gallery in Elverson PA. My work is in collections in the U.S. and Europe.
