Interview with Whopple.com as featured artist for October 2010
I began painting in 1993. I had an antique gallery in Providence, Rhode Island. I came to know Alfred DeCredico. He was an art professor at Rhode Island School of Design. He was also a very accomplished artist with worldwide exposure through galleries and museums. He inspired me to start. I experimented with my own techniques and materials. I would draw and paint for hours into the morning while still running my antique gallery. I started to show my works and was told I had the style of Paul Klee and Miro. I didn't even know who Paul Klee was at the time. Nonetheless I became fairly prolific and am creating my own style. My works are abstract and almost have a mid century style. Sometimes they border on cubist or a new-cubism. I started to show my works to others. I sold so many pieces privately. I was asked to exhibit so many times but never took the time. I am now close to retirement and am going to enjoy painting. I just paint what I feel. I really never know what will appear. I have recently began to paint with an intention or purpose. Not for what it will look like but for a feeling or for person or issue in the world. I love what emerges so many times. I connect with the pieces and just meditate on what forms will emerge. Most of my work is from the subconscious and done automatically. I am just so grateful at times for all I receive from following this path.
