Generating new ideas in various media is my area of interest. I have written five and illustrated twenty children’s books published mainly in New York and have several more in development. I have exhibited steel and bronze sculpture and other two and three dimensional artworks at several museums and many venues from Chicago to Florida to Maine. I have a strong respect for the natural world and its beauty.

Exhibited at the Attleboro, Somerville and New Bedford Museums in MA, the Hoosatonic Museum in Bridgeport, CT, the Newport Art Museum in RI and the Polk Museum of Art in FL and many other venues.

Published by Simon & Schuster, Lippincott, Macmillan, Pantheon, E.P. Dutton, Thomas Y. Crowell, Alfred A Knopf, Coward McCann, William Morrow, Dodd, Mead, Albert Whitman and others.
