During my time at Newsday, I became interested in sculpture, and began producing works in direct plaster and carving in stone. When I left the paper, I opened a sculpture studio in the basement of a posh beauty salon in Great Neck, LI. I used to run upstairs mid-morning to help myself to their freshly brewed coffee. In my smock dotted with all sorts of artistic detritus, I looked like a handyman. At first the customers were shocked, but when the owner/hairdresser whispered that I was the ‘resident sculptor,’ their attitude toward me changed. It was great fun.
Soon I needed more space, so I opened a studio in the Port Washington marina, where I remained until I moved out West. Although I produced over two hundred pieces, I neglected to photograph most of them before they were sold. I deeply regret I don’t have more examples to show on my website, but here is a representative collection of my sculpture in the various media. At the end of the sculpture section, I’ve included a review of one of my shows.
