I have been accepted into sculpture shows since 1967.  I work in bronze, steel, stone, paper mache, wood, plaster, and fiber glass. I trained for several years as a preparator in the American Museum of Natural History in New York. There I made realistic sculptures of Indians and Eskimos. I took classes at the Sculpture Center and at the Art Student's League. As a diorama builder I learned to make plants and landscapes. My museum work was very specific and accurate in the depiction of nature. On the other hand I began making absrtact organic pieces at the same time and have done so since. I have shown in Texas, Vancouver, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Atlantic City, Wilmington, Boone, NC (Rosen International), and Harrisburg (Art of the State) and Grrounds for Sculpture, among others.

Altough I have my own style, I find a kinship with Archipenko, Henry Moore, Brancusi and Barbara Hepworth.

Both my parents were landscape architects and so some of my regard for the rhythm of sculpture and land forms comes from them.

I belong to Grounds for Sulpture, ISC, Community Arts Center, and Philadelphia Sculptors.
