"It's like going into a room of work by Rose SSelavy, Marcel Duchamp's alter ego - the "readymade" made playfully, yet with intelligence and meaning."

"This smiling Wood has left me assured that making art can be fun and viewing art can be joyful." Woodstock Times review of my 1999 Solo show by Pat Horner


I was born in Egremont, Massachusetts, located in the Berkshires. After school I married, and moved 22 times in 30 years.  I worked at my art in many unusual and diverse circumstances while raising a family.  In 1985, while living in New Haven, CT, I lost my home, my studio, and most of my work to a hurricane.  Since then, I've had the good fortune to have and work in a large studio, and have been able to produce larger and better pieces of work, both in painting & sculpture.  In the early 1970's I began to carve wood. Now, in addition, I have expanded my collection of materials for sculpture to the point where my work is, in one form or another, made of found objects.  I have participated in many group and invitational shows around the country and in Germany and Italy.  I have had several solo exhibitions; The Proskauer Prize was given to my sculpture "Chanticleer" at the National Sculpture Society's Annual Awards Exhibition. N.Y.C. 2004.  Many of my sculptures, paintings, and drawings are in private collections both in this country and Germany.
