When our home burned down in 2000 my Op Art paintings, stored in the basement, were rescued and sent to storage for three years during the rebuild. Most survived, but some needed restoration which I lovingly undertook over the period of a year. It was so soothing working on the cellular shapes that I didn't want to stop. Hence, the evolution of my Modernist series which I also think of as Iconic Abstraction.
Since graduation from Bennington College, I have exhibited my unique reclaimed materials sculpture, artbots, and visionary paintings and drawings nationally and internationally, starting with The International Young Artists Exhibition in Osaka, Japan. My work resides in numerous public and private collections including: Tonellerie Taransaud, Cognac; The Spertus Museum, Chicago; The Oakland Museum of California, Sony Corporation, First National Bank of Arizona, Francois Freres, St. Romain, France, and Paramount Pictures for the set of Star Trek: Voyager.
