With the beauty of abstract art coming from the use of shapes, forms, colors and textures, I get energy by coaxing metal into forms that have a different look depending on which way they are viewed. My pieces have no set boundaries which reflects complexity but yet are graceful and thoughtful in the moment. I look to abstract art not to represent a specific object but rather to provoke a thought. The observer will see what they want to see – I’m only trying to get them to think about it.

During this year’s ARTmostNY event

My project for the ARTmostNY open studio this year will be an abstract sculpture in the “Balance With Grace” series of my metal sculptures. Visitors will be seeing techniques used in cutting, shaping, grinding, and polishing steel in preparation for joining together in the creation of the piece. The challenge will be ensuring the pieces will fit together properly with accurate measurements of the pieces.  By the end of Sunday, the piece will be ready for colorizing. About two weeks later, you’ll be able to see the finished piece on Instagram, Facebook or come to the Sculpture Show @ Live 4 Art Gallery August 4-27, Pawling, NY. If you can’t wait to see it in person, call for an appointment to stop by the studio.
