About The Artist

Artist Statement

I am a sculptor, painter and furniture designer who seeks beauty, harmony, balance and proportion in all my endeavors. Growing up in a home atmosphere of art and art appreciation, I have always been involved in the creative arts. My interest in art deco and mid-century design are reflected in most of my art. And my many years as a building contractor has given me an appreciation for wood, metal, aluminum and other materials. I like working with vibrant colors that bring joy and excitement.


In college I majored in Industrial Arts with a Fine Arts minor. I moved to New Hope, PA and began designing modern furniture, which was influenced by the great mid-century designers, George Nakashima, Paul Evans, and Phillip Lloyd Powell, who resided there. Art Deco designs also played an important role in my 2 and 3 dimensional projects and continued to be an important feature in all my designs.

I moved to New York City in the ‘60s, got married, and lived in a loft where I designed and manufactured modern furniture, sculptures, and accessories. One of my chairs and a sculpture were exhibited at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

I have lived in California since 1972 and my sculptures, along with my abstract paintings, have been displayed in various galleries. I have also curated several art and sculpture exhibitions.

My current art projects include designing table furniture with my abstract paintings on the tops. “Tables As Art – Functional Art” collection includes coffee tables, 3 pc sets, console/entry tables, and breakfast/dining tables. Most tops have my abstract painting designs, others have polished copper, brass, and aluminum patchwork and some have a combination of both. All tables come in many sizes, shapes, and colors and have handcrafted architectural stepped legs.

I live in Novato, CA with my wife, Deborah, surrounded by my furniture, paintings, and kinetic wind sculptures on my front lawn and back deck. I am a member of International Sculpture Center, Pacific Rim Sculptors, and Marin Open Studios.
