2. How long have you been an artist and how did you get started?
I was told I was an ‘artist’ in the second grade. From that day forward, I considered myself an ‘artist.

3. Explain a bit about your process, please.

I digitally blend multiple photographs to create images that may suggest the past, the future or a new reality. I juxtapose the neglected with the occupied, the deserted with the inhabited, one place with another, or the past with the present.

4. What’s the comment heard most about your art?
Many people look at my finished prints and ask, “How did ever you do that?”

5. What is one thing people find surprising about how your art is created?
Viewers of my artwork are always surprised how the collaging of different images become so integrated.

6. What’s the one tool you couldn’t live without, in creating your art?

As my work is so technically involved, I cannot live without my cameras, computer, scanner, and printers.

7. How has your art changed over time?
I originally was a painter but then became addicted to printmaking, especially etching. Later I started to combine photography with my prints. The development of Photoshop drew me to concentrate on photography and image manipulation.

8. What’s your favorite part about making your pieces? Least favorite?
I love the possibilities available to me by combining different photographs to produce montages that ask to the viewer to blend their own imagination with the illusions I present. I enjoy everything about the technique I use to produce my prints.

9. What’s your dream project?
My dream project at the moment is to have an exhibit in Rochester.

New Studio
10. Where is your art available for purchase?
My art is available for purchase at my studio in the Anderson Arts Building, 250 N. Goodman Street, #402. The studio is open to the public on most First Fridays and by appointment.

I am represented in New York City by the Ceres Gallery, 547 West 27th Street, #201. I also ship work to buyers who contact me thru my website.

HAPPY NEWS

I am ‘back in the game’ again. Last year I didn’t have time to enter an ArtSlant Showcase, so it was fun to enter the “Beach House” from my portfolio,  A Different View, in the first Showcase of 2016. Today I received this message: Great News! You have been selected as a Winner in the 1st 2016 ArtSlant Prize Showcase! 

I can also announce that I have completed my first Photographic Montage of 2016. “Encounter” is also part of the  “A Different View” portfolio.

My August Interview at hob’art gallery

When you have some free time, please watch Public Voice Salon. Episode No. 116. July 26, 2015. Hob’art .mov

John Briden interviewed Liz Cohen, Ibou Ndoye and me at my last public appearance at the hob’art gallery. Leaving Hoboken and my friends, fellow artists at the gallery, has left an empty space in my life. I miss them all so the interview was a bittersweet ending. I am still a part of the gallery and hope to send artwork to shows in 2016.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!

Moved into My New Studio in Rochester, NY today!

Anderson Art Building, 250 North Goodman Street, #402, Rochester, NY.

It finally happened! I moved into a lovely studio space that I am sharing with Nancy Valle, a ceramic artist. 6 big windows with a view of the Memorial Art Gallery and near the Eastman Museum. All I have to do now, is unpack 50 boxes, put everything away, place art on the walls, and be ready for the annual Gala in honor of the Holiday Season and the monthly Art Walk on this Friday, December 4th and the Saturday Open Studios. Wish me luck.

If you are in the area stop in to see my artwork at the Anderson Arts Building, 250 N. Goodman Street, #402, Rochester, NY. Open Friday, 6-9pm and Saturday, 12-4pm.
