There are three parts to this exhibition

I:  The Paintings: 

Are from my many trips to Spain . Particularly at the Cathedral of Monserrat and its’ surroundings.


Moonscape or (Moon Over Monserrat) 2006, is an oil on canvas with mixed media and collage. This work was the turning point for my rock series.

II:   The Handmade Paper:

In the winter of 2007, in New York City, the Dieu Donne Papermill gave me the opportunity to continue my rock series by creating pigmented collaged papers. There is no paint used in these works, only pigmented paper.

III. The Handmade Books:

The Handmade Books are a direct link between actual story telling, the influence of my many years of Northern Italian Renaissance collages and the Renaissance Book Boxes. All are hand-sewn and each book has 12 pages; telling the love story of Alfredo and Elizabeth.

The influences from  the places I have been, play a large part in the creation of my current work. I then have separated myself from the  influences and go into my dreamlike states.
