My work was primarily photo-based and sometimes not obvious. I layer a multitude of images that I assemble into a “visual dialogue”. The recognizable silhouettes (photograms) of an assortment of generic crowds of people are reduced to texture as they move throughout. They are also actors in my commentary about various concerns .
I was born in Chomutov, Czech Republic. I currently reside in Milford, CT and have lived in many places such as: Israel, Virginia, Boston, South Carolina, California and recently Omaha, NE. I received a B.F.A. from Virginia Commonwealth University, graduate course work at The Massachusetts College of Art, and an M.F.A. from Clemson University.
My work is a hinge between artist and audience. One enters the work through the visual temptation of color, visual tricks and, at times, words and symbols. Because there is usually an element of participation involved I enjoy the idea that the work is continually reinterpreted and refreshed through those who encounter it.

I have been exploring the use of a flatbed scanner instead of a camera to photograph souvenirs of nature and the day, arranged on the scanner’s glass, since 1997. Compositions are mostly inspired and informed by the garden, still life, mosaics, botanical illustration and sculpture.
I scan what other people grow, collect and what I can forage from nature. Yes, I consider my work to be a niche of Photography. I have been using a flatbed scanner as a camera since 1997.

I have had an on-going experiment for most of my life of capturing my own positive thoughts in the process of creating paintings mostly of nature based subject matter in oils and acrylics. My hope is that I can imbue these 2 dimensional forms with my positive meditations and share them with others.
