I have a BA degree from the Rhode Island School of Design and an MA from the Hartford Art School. I have taught for many years, in public schools, the Wadsworth Athenaeum, the Hartford Art School and, most recently, at the Cambridge School of Weston. My work is in corporate collections in the Cambridge area and in many private collections throughout the U.S. Currently, I am represented by the Cove Gallery in Wellfleet, MA.
The printmaking process allows me to apply a lifetime of experience in drawing and painting in a new way. A way that goes beyond what I can do with paint, and a way that goes beyond what I can entirely predict. I am captivated by this element of unpredictability in the monoprint process; this keeps my work evolving and thus it stays alive for me. Although my images are derived from things Iíve seen, they are not directly representational. Rather, they are distilled from impressions and memories. They are built from profound impressions of the look of a place, the sounds and spirit of a placeĖ a combination of visual and intuitive insights. To make my monotypes I usually apply inks to pieces of paper and assemble them on an inked or uninked printing plate. I often run a print through the press many times, each time adding a new element, building the final image in many layers. Sometimes I glue pieces of inked or printed papers to the print; these are "monotype w/collage". Those works identified as "monotype collage" are composed entirely of glued monotype-printed papers. I often use Prismacolor pencils to clarify, add to or alter some shapes or colors. On some prints I also over-print with woodcut.
