I use mixed media including photography, text and paint; limited edition books, performance and video.

My recent work are garden installations.

They are on-going projects


Invasives : Topiary : Parterre was constructed and planted at Ipark in East Haddam, Connecticut in October 2012

Two more planting installations using the concept of the Hortus Conclusus - The Enclosed Garden were constructed at I-Park in May and June 2014.

Natural Parterre is a new project started in November 2018 at Hillstead Museum in Farmington, Connecticut.

A link to a YouTube video about I-Park and the installations broadcast by Channel 4’s “Better Connecticut” WFSB, on July 22nd 2015


Here is the book/catalogue of my installations published by the I-Park Foundation
