My professional training was in graphic arts. I worked in the printing and graphic design industry for over 42 years before devoting myself to my artwork full time. In addition to my work in fiber art I have worked in 3 dimensional forms including clay, paper, metal and wood. I use a variety of complex hand stitching techniques with 100% tapestry wool yarn on canvas to build my abstract geometric compositions ranging in scale from 9” x 15” to 6’ x 6’. My framed one of a kind wallhangings are well suited to both large interior spaces and smaller settings within the home and office. I have done commissioned work and invite inquiries to appeal to the most discerning of clients.
For the past 37 years I have designed and executed original hand stitched abstractand geometric tapestries on canvas. It has been a labor of love and very challenging to design in spite of the restrictive medium of fiber art.
Initially I started designing my fiber art as a creative outlet from the pressures of business. After retirement and having accumulated many rolled up completed canvases stored in a closet, my wife suggested that perhaps it’s time to come out of the closet to exhibit and sell my artwork.
Since retiring at age 62 I have devoted all my time to designing and stitching fiber-art wallhangings. Three years ago my wife of 47 years became my business manager/ promoter and I have exhibited and sold my art in galleries and upscale art shows and art and craft shows.
I have exhibited in the following galleries: A Mano Gallery, Lambertville, N.J., American Craftsman, Manhattan and Stockbridge, MA., Alianza, Boston, MA., Brookfield Craft Centre, Brookfield, Ct., The Klay Gallery, Nyack, NY., Fiber Art Center, Amherst, MA. I am presently exhibiting at Lattitude Gallery, Boston, MA. and Grace Café and Galleries, Dania, Florida. I have also exhibited in many juried art shows including the Smithsonian Craft Show in Washington, DC.in 2006 and 2008., Bruce Museum, Greenwich, CT., Crafts America, Washington, D.C. Westchester, NY, Palm Beach. FL. I have exhibited large canvases at the Bridgeport Discovery Museum, Bridgeport, CT., corporate lobby exhibits at the Landmark Building, Tarrytown, NY, and Milford Merrit Crossing, Milford, CT., Kings County Public Art Collection- 4 Culture, Seattle, WA
