Artist and Educator. I use traditional landscape compositional devices as the framework for abstract painting. In both my fresco and oil paintings I explore the transcendent and ecstatic. My artwork is informed by traditional techniques of painting. The limited palette of natural earth colors as well as the compartmentalization of scenes comes out of the process and compositional devices of Early Renaissance painting. My artwork has been exhibited in New York, California, Maryland, Maine and Washington. D.C.
An image of one of my frescoes will be featured in the technique section of the 3rd edition of “Gateway to the Arts”the leading art appreciation textbook used in colleges and advanced placement courses, Published by Thames & Hudson. (fall 2018) In the fall I will be presenting hands-on fresco workshops at colleges.
