About Me



At Bennington, Richard Haas taught me design & Isaac Witkin sculpture and trusting my instincts.

I earned a BA in Fine Art at Stony Brook University studying with Malcolm Morley and Dennis Oppenheim.

Afterwards in Soho, I got to know Janet Fish and Chuck Close in the 80’s. There’s no substitute for learning how world-class artists think and work, especially through adversity.

These artists taught me how to unite the power of composition and narrative with the physicality of paint and the emotional meaning of gesture and color. And to keep on working.
