It all started when...

I was born in New York into a very different world from what I have experienced in my adult life.  From a young age, I was aware of turmoil in my personal surroundings, but tried to focus on the natural world around me for relief.  I treasured a quiet life of introspection.

As I grew up, I grew calmer.  I explored nature in my art. In reaction to living for eight years in the Caribbean, my Waves series evolved.  Then I turned to the land and Branches. Eventually figures began to move in to the scenes.  My art was always influenced by my surroundings, both physical and emotional.

I began to realize that the turmoil I thought I might have escaped in nature was still all around me, now on the world stage.  It was challenging to find respite. I turned to studying figures in major art museums around the world, where humanity can still find calm in a world of increasing stress.
