LocationBoston, MA

In my OVOID series different arrangements of oval shapes, protean luxuriant colors, and sublime soft texture create a feeling of transcendent order.  These images are anti-chaos.  All strive for a connection to a moment of reflection, resolution and calm.  I strive through marvelous, dynamic and resolved color relationships to make a visual place for personal contemplation and serenity. I use gouache paint on Rives BFK rag paper. I am a graduate of the SMFA at Tufts, Boston. My work has been shown at Butler Museum of American Art, Danforth Museum and University of Maine Museum of Art.  Held in over 50 corporate collections, my work is shown at Graficas Gallery, Nantucket, MA (10 solos), Drawing Project@Carroll & Sons, Boston, Heather Gaudio Fine Art, CT.; Jules Place, Boston, Bernay Fine Art, Great Barrrington, MA & The Portland Art Gallery, ME and 15th Street Gallery, Boulder, CO.   I have been fortunate to be part of the MassArt Auction in 2021 and a number of years prior.
