After 35+ years of teaching, I exhibit my work in Boston and Sedona. My most recent work combines monotypes and oil painting onto large canvases which will be exhibited in "Apparitions"at Western New England University, April 2020.
From 2010 to 2016, I created a body of work inspired by Armenian history and ancestry. This culminated in a solo exhibit at the Armenian Museum, commemorating the 100th year anniversary of the Armenian Diaspora.
My monotype prints are figurative, often with several poses on one print. The drawings use combinations of charcoal, graphite and conte. I paint in oils, including figurative imagery and architectural elements.
"Caffeinated Art" emerged from my coffee addiction and the desire to use recycled materials. The Boston and Sedona landmarks are created entirely from used espresso pods. They are embedded in a layer of resin, protecting the surface and enhancing the colors.
