About the Artist:

I have been a working artist for 32 years. While I’ve traditionally worked with still life and with figurative subjects through drawing and painting, this project will be inspired by the historical use of a school chair in reading, writing and learning.  The little leather pouch on the back of Seat of Imagination, which can hold one's creative tools was fabricated by Lakeville Interiors.

Most recently I have shown at the New Arts Gallery in Litchfield and the White Gallery in Lakeville, Connecticut. I have shown in many locations nationally and internationally. To my knowledge my work has been collected for private residences.
