As I capture an image through the camera’s lens, I find beauty in the ordinary and the odd. Digital abstractions are on display at my studio. I have drawn in charcoal, graphite and pen and ink. I paint in acrylics. I have worked with figures in clay. I digitally rework images of my own artwork. Come see my new work.
ADDRESSMuskrat Studio, 111 Rachel Carson Way, Ithaca, NY 14850
Take route 79 west out of Ithaca, about two miles. EcoVillage is on Rachel Carson Way, the first left after West Haven Rd. Take a left onto the access road at Gourdlandia, the first building you see on your left while still on Rachel Carson Way. You will see ample parking nearby. Walk along the access road and take your only right up into the Frog neighborhood group. Take the left side of the pedestrian walkway until you reach 111 Rachel Carson Way. All buildings in EcoVillage have a Rachel Carson Way address whether or not they are actually on that road. This is confusing to first time visitors. Homes are numbered consecutively
When I was working to support a family, I longed to be an artist. I needed the money systems engineering provided, yet I really needed art. My compromise was an avocation in painting, drawing, photography and poetry. Now I am retired and free to pursue art. As a photographer, I explore new visions in the shots I take and in digital abstractions. I like to find beauty, sometimes hidden in the oddest places.
I studied art at the Boston School of the Museum of Fine Arts and the University of Massachusetts. I studied with Chuck Close, William Flynn, Mela Lyman, Ralph Helmick and Abby Zonies. Work exists in several private collections in Boston, Cambridge and Ithaca.
