CAREER OBJECTIVE:

To create innovative and enduring works of art that reveal new perspectives on history, industry, and culture. "Through my art I strive to give voice to the past & memory to the future."



SYNOPSIS:

I began my career as a professional interior designer. At the request of several clients, I created pieces of art to complement the design work that I was doing for them. In 1987, while experimenting with chemical applications, I invented Metalar(TM), the metallic resin medium that I now use in virtually all of my work.

Today, I specialize in a unique form of art through which I create composite representations of industrial scenes and cityscapes, as well as other more abstract pieces. These are constructed from historical artifacts representing diverse industries, and embedded in a background of Metalar. My larger pieces typically are commissioned by corporate sponsors and individual collectors, who display my art to bring to life perspectives on their industry, region, or historical roots. My smaller pieces tend to be more abstract, appealing to a broad audience because of their intrinsically interesting compositions of historical elements. I have also used Metalar with dramatic effect as a decorative medium for visual merchandising and store display for clients such as Chrysler Corporation and Bloomingdale’s department store in New York City.
