For as long as I can remember, I have been involved in art. I graduated from the High School of Music and Art in New York, and received my B.A. in Fine Arts from Brandeis University in 1961. At Brandeis, I had the privilege of working with remarkable teachers and artists, including Marc Chagall. Another highlight of my college experience occurred between my sophomore and junior year when I received a scholarship to attend the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture for its nine week summer program for emerging artists. After graduation, I continued painting while raising my family and presented my work in several group shows at M.I.T. and the Boston Visual Artists' Union. I returned to the classroom, primarily as an art teacher at Brookline High School for 30 years, but also as a student at Harvard University's extension program, where I received my M.A. in Art History. Throughout these years, I led numerous art tours to Italy for high school students and adults from around the country.
As I enter my ninth decade, I find myself in one of the most prolific phases of my career. As much as I have been alarmed by the chaos and divisiveness of our times, I have also been energized by them. These works, completed within the last several years, represent my effort to convey the fragility and complexity of our political and natural world.
