Here's a detail shot of one of two new paintings that I've been working on. Finished sizes will be a little less than 30x30. Sixth in a series with my interpretation of the mold that’s inundating Sandy damaged houses here at the New Jersey shore.

My work relates to preservation, regardless of the series. The art has a certain ambiguity to it, the viewer relates to the image and places it in his mind to a specific location. The actual original setting most likely has nothing to do with the viewers’ preconception, and may not physically exist anywhere except in my imagination. I portray imagery of the planet's fragile beauty while questioning our culture, which promotes instant gratification while ignoring evolving consequences. I feel obligated to make work that addresses these issues.
By working this way, I stay true to my convictions, and can possibly raise awareness after viewers realize that these are not just pretty paintings, the beauty is only skin deep; a reminder that it’s urgent to understand what is real and what is fabricated.
I began my current series depicting harmful algae blooms because of the ongoing issues facing Barnegat Bay close to my home. The work displays my interpretation of existing toxic algae species.
I offer acrylic paintings or textiles, combining media to attain intricate textures using an accumulation of thin layers of color and delicate line work created with thread. Mosaic or glass installations can be constructed utilizing a qualified fabricator. My atrium sculptures and commissioned wall mounted pieces are site-specific and inspired by the environment and the area surrounding the installation. I work closely with architects, designers and developers. Natural, recycled and organic materials are available for LEED certified buildings and work is available for Evidence Based Design applications in healthcare.
In addition to exhibiting my work and completing numerous commissions for public spaces, I’m a Signature Artist Member of the Noyes Museum of Art, Oceanville, NJ and represented by several galleries.
