Objective:

My training is in design for the theater, mostly costume design.  Since 1986, I have been costuming for professional, academic, and community theaters all over New England, upstate New York, New York City and in the UK.

My current fine arts work is bringing my theater training to bear on my other, more personal, work in visual presentation. I want to use theater’s ability to directly involve an audience to enrich the work, to allow it to express, and at the same time, become part of that which we call the Human Condition.
