From Abstract Painter to Designer and back again

I have been creating art all of my life. From painting one of a kind abstract needlepoint canvases sold in my shop in Greenwich Village to my current upscale souvenir company that features my original graphics that are sold nationally to airports and gift shops. When I am developing graphics for my souvenir company I am looking out into the world at landmarks and specific icons for inspiration, and the work is representational, with a Pop twist. When I am painting for myself the imagery is totally abstract . For many years I have kept both styles separate and now have found a way to allow my complete voice in one expression.

Every new canvas begins as an adventure, similar to the thrill I feel when I go to New York city and am always in awe and excited by the pulse of city life. I work intuitively with no conscious intention, beginning with a line drawing of a recognizable NY icon, as a jumping off point .I bring to the canvas, a well of fantasy, memory ,and emotion. The work is about rhythm, energy, light space and color where I am physically exploring and sharing my excitement with the city. The texture, fluidtiy, and immediacy of the paint feels like a dance. There is a point when a composition evolves and the work takes on a life of its own, and I am balancing between spontaneity and structure. I usually work on three or four canvases at a time and it feels like one continuous work bringing me closer to a deeper understanding of my own center and clarity.

Brilliant color found in nature, city life and music are my inspirations. My soul was touched when I first learned about Les Fauves: Matisse, Derain, Vlaminck and when I saw paintings by Arshille Gorkey and Hans Hoffman.

My hope is that the viewer will join me in the adventure, set thought aside, and be open to allowing their own sensibilities to take in and enjoy my work on a purely emotional and visceral level.
