I create social issue art and art from the heart. I am process oriented. I transform my inner values into tangible issue-oriented sculptures about contemporary concerns. The works' whimsical quality serves as a lure and a buffer. This lets the viewer to linger longer rather than avoid. The nature of an issue moves me to choose the materials and way of working. I titled an installation: "Whistleblowers: Trumpeters Of Conscience", other titles: "Giuliani: I'm Heartbroken, Hungry & Homeless" and "Broken Covenant" provide a sense of the social issues I have transformed into sculptures. I also create generic whistleblowers, collages and paintings.

I would be dubbed an "Outsider Artist." I went from Chaim Gross at the New School to Greenwich House Pottery to Alfred Summer Session to California's Humboldt State in the redwoods to be in Michael Lucero's workshop and to Hunter's basement taking sculpture, painting and clay classes. I have received 3 awards from '08 to '09 for painting, sculpture and clay. A work of mine was in the Everson Museum's "Ceramics 2000" and its show catalog. My work has been juried into the Noyes Museum, Penn State 's Gallery, the Water Mill Museum, NYU Small Works Show and the Puffin Foundation/Puffin Room. I was acknowledged in the New York Times, was an art panelist on the WNYC Leonard Lopate Show and featured on the cover of "Bridging the Gap" newsletter. I am an active member of several art organizations.
