When I moved to Alaska in 1966 I was overwhelmed with the natural environment. Growing up in New Jersey the terrain was benign by comparison. I fell in love with overpowering environment. I was fortunate to travel around the state into remote locations which deepened my connection with this extraordinary place.
In 1970 I returned to the northeast to Syracuse for four years summering back in Alaska. In 1974 I received my BFA returned to AK permanently. I set up shop, metal/black smithing, in and around my log cabin in Girdwood, AK.
In 1979 I joined the Visual Arts Center in Anchorage. I joined a great community with studio space, exhibitions and visiting artists workshops (from all over the U.S.). Originally, I joined as participating artist, then as a member of the board and later as a studio director. In 1979 and 1987 I installed One-man exhibitions in the Anchorage Museum and 1985 at the VAC. I received several public commissions and participated in numerous groups shows up to 1990 when I moved back to the NYC area.
Setting up in Jersey City 1990, I showed in group shows. Suspended kinetic installations were my primary focus in NY, MA, NJ, DE, IL, WS, ND, and MN.
Macy’s Parade Studio hired me in 1992 as a metal fabricator. Construction design, ornamental and structural forms kept me moving. Mechanical devices and machines were built to provide life action for many elements.
Currently I work full time on my sculpture on the bank of the Hudson River, Yonkers, NY.
