About

I have a confession to make ... From 1976 until 1990, I exhibited regularly. My work is in public and private collections. I was represented by two galleries. I worked on art nearly every day and imagined for myself only a life as an artist. In 1987, I took a job as a book designer. I loved the work, and though I never stopped making fine art, my attention to it became erratic. I stopped showing.

It's an old story of unintended consequences. My design career flourished, but my art career stalled. Some 20 years on, I'm picking up where I left off. There's a hole in my exhibition record you could drive a train through, but at both ends is a worthy body of work.
