Artist's Biography

I am a wall sculptor that works primarily with wood and paint. I do sometimes incorporate metal, reclaimed wood, found objects and man-made materials like PVC and Azek.

I attended Temple University and got my degree in film, although I was originally an art major, and I ended up pursuing a career in product development and design and brand management. While I enjoyed bringing over 200 products to retail from raw concepts, I decided to begin working on my art again at age 43. After a few years, I had enough work and momentum to transition to being a full time artist and I haven’t looked back.

My work is in the collections of the following hotel groups: Westin, Hyatt, Sheraton, Hilton, Wyndham, Sonesta, Four Seasons and Marriot and at iconic properties including The Hotel Coronado in San Diego and The Shard Building in London. Several Fortune 500 companies including PriceWaterHouse Cooper and Capital One hold work in their collections.

In the Philadelphia area, my work can be seen at The Sterling Building, The Hadley Restaurant, The Sheraton Downtown, The Cira Center, Jefferson Health, The Chocolate Works, Live! Casino and The Cooper Hospital.

I have shown work at art fairs such as The Other Art Fair Brooklyn, Scope Miami, Art Wynwood, SOFA Chicago and Texas Contemporary.

Artist's Statement

I predominately work with wood as my base medium, due to its strength, dimension and organic nature. The inherent texture of wood combined with paint and other man made materials allow me to explore the concepts of old and young, worn versus new, organic versus man-made and the past versus the present and future. I look to capture a sense of time in my work and often combine the feeling of different eras within a single piece. I see this as a direct parallel with human life, as we too grow older and interact with other generations, both younger and older.

I particularly inspired by mid-century modernism, where wood and organic shapes were combined with other materials to suggest a type of futurism, though now they are considered vintage. Time has passed on but these pieces remain in that context of when they were designed. I want my work to feel this way, somewhat nostalgic, aged and organic with the feeling that it could also be from a future time.
