“Cascade is a welded fabricated metal sculpture of abstracted steel forms created in the modernist tradition. I created this piece as a colorful, brightly painted sculpture in which I play with designs, structure, and scale. In this piece, I suggest the moment just before motion takes place. In this case, the moment just before the spheres begin to roll off their perch. In my sculptures I want the observer to have a visual conversation with the work of art and as they move around the sculpture, I want the peice to slowly reveal itself to the viewer.”
“I grew up in a small resort town in South Western Michigan. The beauty of Lake Michigan and the ever-shifting aspects of its shoreline influenced my childhood; after graduating from Western Michigan State University with a Bachelors of Science degree in Graphic Design, I moved to Chicago and worked as a Graphic Designer. I also was very active as a Painter and was regularly showing my work in galleries throughout the Midwest. In the mid 1980's I accepted a position as a Graphic Designer on the east coast and moved to Connecticut. By the late 1980's I moved to New York City and attended graduate school at the School of Visual Arts. I received a Masters of Fine Arts degree in 1989. I moved back to Connecticut in 1990 and have called Connecticut home ever since. I have always had an affinity for sculpture and in late 1990's I started to experiment with sculpture and have been creating sculptural pieces ever since.
Currently, I live with my family in the Northwest Hills of Connecticut where I paint, sculpt, and design. When not working in my studio, I am a full-time Professor of Graphic Design at Western Connecticut State University.
My artwork has been shown extensively and can be found in many public and private collections throughout the United States.”
