After 30 years of practicing architecture, I turned my focus to painting. My art is an extension of my career, moving from geometric and linear, to abstract and free form. I find it a continuing process of learning what I can do with paint and discovering what paint can do for me. I work in acrylic paints, and I experiment with a variety of material application methods from brushes to credit cards, rags to squeegees. I handle the canvas over and again, forming multiple layers of paint which gives the piece its texture and color. The paintings are my emotional and spiritual expression. I earned a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the Boston Architectural College. I hold membership in the American Institute of Architects and the Boston Society of Architects. I am a member of the New Art Center, the Newton Artist Association and Watch City Arts. I live and work in Waltham, Massachusetts.
