My love of birds and nature has influenced where I live and most everything in my life. I grew up on Long Island, New York, where both my parents were watercolorists. I began drawing under the guidance of my parent’s mentor, Harold Stevenson.

 

I lived in New Hampshire for 30 years, as a woodworker, raising a family, running a fruit farm and tree farm, and working as a mental health counselor at Southern New Hampshire University.

 

I carve birds and build custom furniture from my shop in Natick, Massachusetts. I won the Liz Schaeffler Sculpture Award from the Artist Association of Nantucket.

 

I am a dedicated gardener.  Besides just being out in nature, much of my inspiration is from my longtime friend, renowned wood sculptor, Jon Brooks of New Boston, NH. 

 

My work is in numerous private collections.
