Artists never stop working; always looking for new ideas, new materials and new connections. As a ‘colorist’ my eye is constantly seeking out new color combinations and hues which is reflected in my work.
And, I enjoy working with women on their jewelry selections, it pleases me to know that I will be with them for that special event or just knocking around the house in a new statement piece by yours truly..
Originally I was an exhibiting artist in NYC with my wonderful large and unwieldy oil paintings that required trucks and personnel to exhibit and relocate. From there I found myself working at National Academy of Design in Manhattan were I met many of America’s top artists including Alex Katz, Wolf Kahn, and Julian Schnabel.
It was during that time that I realized how much work is involved in creating art and aside from a sprinkle of magic here and there, it all comes down to the discipline of creating something beautiful.
From there I worked in publishing when printed magazines were inches thick and elegance permeated the inner workings of media. During that time I mastered digital design and WOW! what an eye-opening experience that was, enabling us to be masters of our own universe.
In 2016 I began to design jewelry as a way work with my hands again and since then my jewelry designs have blossomed into a small business with trunk shows along the east coast and participation in a variety of marketing venues including the Javits Center in New York.
