My work is generated from observation, the passage of time, and memory. These sources are not fixed or reliable. Subjects are varied and include landscapes, industrial vistas, interiors, still lives of small objects I have made, found, or grown, and photography. The garden is a large part of my practice. Many plants in the garden were passed down through family members and friends. My work explores how time, climate, and atmospheric conditions like weather and light affect the landscape, both large and small, and illuminate the process of growth and entropy within the natural world. From large abstract paintings to nature studies and mixed media constructions, I employ a conversation between abstraction and figuration to examine the small and often overlooked parts of the world in a constant state of transformation.
I am an artist, gardener, and designer who lives in New Jersey. My work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions and is included in the permanent collections of the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, Wills Eye Hospital, AECom, Korn Ferry International in Philadelphia, and Artists Representing Environmental Art in New York. I am represented by Bluestone Fine Art Gallery in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Hardcastle Gallery in Wilmington, Delaware.
As a designer, I have created pieces for NFL Films, QVC, NBC Sports, and Ercole NY, and was a featured Artist/Designer for ABC Carpet & Home. Along with being an Adjunct Professor at Camden County College, I head the Visual Art program at Westfield Friends School in Cinnaminson, New Jersey.
