My art training is anchored in the traditional style. Painting and drawing throughout childhood
created a path to the painting and sculpture department of the School of the Museum of Fine
Arts in Boston, MA. Graduation was in 1968 with Highest Honors. This was in addition to
private studies in both sculpture and figure drawing with renown sculptor and teacher, Mr.
George Demetrious of Gloucester, Ma.
Traditional painting seemed too restrictive so I gradually found my way toward a
contemporary style which is liberating and better suited to my thinking and lifestyle.
I have always had a fascination with diversity and so my work is of contrasts - opposites that
converge to form a harmonic visual experience; fine and broad brushstrokes, rough and clean
lines, light and dark, stillness and movement, boldness and discipline, thought and emotion,
inner and outer life. All are inspired by a lifelong interest in people, extensive travel, music
(especially jazz) and my life in Boston's Back Bay.
