SPECIAL 30% DISCOUNT DURING THIS STRESSFUL PANDEMIC 

Art that speaks to us of meaning, that touches us in a personal way, is even more important  during times like these, when uncertainty and concern can overwhelm our normal sense of life as we've known it.


If my work speaks to you and touches you, I'd love to help you own some of it. 


During this pandemic I'm offering a 30% discount for many pieces on my website as well as pieces not shown.  My work is generally valued between $300 - $14,000 before discount, depending on medium, size and complexity. I want to work with you to help you enjoy my work in your home, whatever your situation is. And I will also appreciate your support of my art.

NEW DATES FOR MY UPCOMING SHOW IN CHELSEA: September 8 - October 3, 2020

I've been invited to share the First Street Gallery exhibition space in Chelsea with one of my favorite artists, Wendy Gittler. For both of us, this will be an exciting show of new work. 

Previously scheduled for March, 2020, the Virus Shutdown has forced us to move the show forward. We finally have the dates! Alas, there will be no Opening Party because of the need for social distancing, but the gallery will be open Tuesdays through Fridays 11-4 and Saturdays 11-6. 


I'M PROUD TO BE INCLUDED IN THIS ONLINE EXHIBITION HOSTED BY ARTSY !

VISITING ARTIST AT HARVARD, AUGUST 2019

I'm honored to have been invited for the seventh year in a row to participate as a Visiting Artist in Harvard's Freshmen Arts Program. This year I gave two Ink/Collage Masterclasses to incoming students. What a pleasure to be able to share my passion for this work with new artists!

PROFESSIONAL WORKSHOP IN ICELAND, AUGUST 2019:

I was privileged to lead an intensive 4-day workshop in Ink/Collage at the gorgeous Baer Art Center in Hofsos, Iceland. We had an amazing group of serious and talented artists all enthusiastic about experimenting and pushing their norms - it was very exciting for all of us!

TOUR OF ICELAND JULY-AUGUST, 2019

My partner Rick and I rented car and 4x4 to travel the perimeter of Iceland and venture into the interior, which is open only 2 months a year because of the climate. This was an extraordinary trip, and Iceland is back at the top of our Bucket List to return and spend a longer time there!

I-PARK FELLOWS ARTIST RESIDENCY, APRIL 2019:

I was gifted with a special month's Artist Residency for Alumni Fellows at fabulous I-Park in East Haddam, Connecticut. Winter was slowly turning into Spring, a bit wet to work outdoors, but my huge studio had a floor to ceiling wall of glass overlooking trees and walks in the woods provided me with inspiring source material for a new body of ink and acrylic collages.

MEDIA EXPOSURE, FEBRUARY, 2019: 

My oil painting Passport appears in NBC's hot new television series New Amsterdam

Passport was inspired by my month-long photographic assignment in Egypt in 2006, and it took me over a period of 12 years to get every little "portrait" to have its own sense of presence.
