I am a painter, I use oils and draw the figure with charcoal.
I spent years in New York City going to Cooper Union, helping to start
the New York Studio School in the sixties, and then just lived there as
I came to Vermont to paint and bought land here while it was
very cheap. I show in NYC and Vermont, and see painting more as a
calling than a business.
Redstockings Artists was the name of our group, I've been composting,
recycling and gardening organically for decades. Virginia Woolfe,
Simone de Beauvoir are people I study as well as Piero della Francescha and John Constable.
Most of the galleries I've shown in have been cooperative, ambitious ones. Bowery Gallery in Chelsea, NYC for example. I teach drawing and painting in the Vermont State College system, at Johnson State College two days a week as an adjunct professor.
