I have made my living as a sculptor since graduating from Parson’s School of Design, NYC nearly 30 years ago. In 2006, I made a conscious decision to transition into painting, which was prompted by a series of textile designs I produced for Asprey & Co., a high end British luxury store. I enjoyed the process so much that I kept at it, producing a series of works which, for the most part, are based on abstracted botanical illustrations.
Lately I have been painting on precious hardwoods - mahogany, walnut, birch and maple, supplementing the work with materials such as lacquer, white and yellow gold leaf to give the paintings an extra layer of light and luxury.
If I had to use three words to describe my work, they would be:
Colour, Movement, Drama.
