Artist Statement
I am a sculptor who creates politically aware work. There are problems and chaos in the world around us and I deal with these issues in my work. I work in several media including sculpture, installation, mail art, photography, and video.  Currently, I am creating a body of work based on war. Children’s toys and packaging for these toys fascinate me and have become integrated elements of my work.

Artist Bio / CV
 My work has been exhibited internationally in England and Germany, and frequently in the New York tristate area, including group exhibits at the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art in Ridgefield, CT and PPOW Gallery in New York.
