About the Artist

My work as an optical sculptor reflects my background in science, art and psychology. I received my doctorate in physical chemistry from the University of Illinois, where I studied the interaction of light and matter. After working as a scientist for Bell Labs and Digital Equipment Corporation, I founded a sculpture and design studio in Boston, where I pioneered sculptural techniques using optical clear polymer resins as my medium. I have worked to perfect these techniques for the past 22 years. Combining various polymers, organic dyes, gold and silver leaf, water and light, I have produced optical sculptures ranging from less than one-foot to ten-feet in height. My work has been exhibited in galleries nationally and have been commissioned for both corporate and private collections. I moved my studio to Puget Sound in 2003 where my wife and I work in a rural setting close to the land and our gardens.
