I'm a mixed media artist based in Bloomfield, CT......I've been exhibiting my work since 1990. I call the work "Post-Consumer Modernism" because most of the materials I use have had a previous life. The work in general is a hybrid of painting and sculpture, nonrepresentational in composition. Influences include Russian Constructivism, Abstract Expessionism, the Dada movement, Cubism, Pop and Readymades. Favorite artists are Jackson Pollack, Stuart Davis, Joseph Cornell, Kurt Schwitters, Edward Hopper, Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol and Weegee. I have a B.A. from Central Connecticut State University, and I've been employed for ten years as a Preparator at the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art in Hartford (America's longest continually running museum).
