  1. *The artwork scheduled for this exhibit was being stored in the World Trade Center offices of the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, awaiting installation at the Federal Reserve Bank. All of it was destroyed in the collapse of the World Trade Center on 9/11/2001, including my three pen and ink drawings. Therefore, the exhibit never occurred.

Comment: Painting is the art form that I most often return to, with drawing, letterpress printing, bookbinding, and graphic design running interference from time to time. But I always return to painting. Originally, I worked primarily in oils. Now, watercolor has become my main focus and challenge. Various subjects vie for attention but architecture and urban environments usually win the battle. My other interests include silverpoint drawing and designing and making books. Until recently I also had a full-time career as the Director of Publications for a New York City Independent School.
