Art using found objects has attracted me since 1965, when I was living in the San Francisco Bay Area and saw the huge sculptures made from objects found on the shore. They were fantastic, noisy, beautiful works with a great sense of humor and vitality. I have never forgotten them. In 1992, having established a permanent studio in the Hudson Valley, NY, I began to combine found materials with wood carvings I had been doing. I started using vintage wood, metal, and layered rag paper and adding interesting bits and pieces to the mix. I tend to be a traditionalist in that I like works that have a fine finish, permanence, and uniqueness. I have an extensive exhibition history beginning in 1960 and continuing with a solo exhibition in the summer of 2024 at the Olive Branch Gallery, Olive Bridge, NY.
