One-room Lincoln School (1867)
Converted to residence 1962
3000’ addition and artist studio/workshop (1990-1998)
Completely refreshed (2017). Semi-rural northern Chester County, Pennsylvania
Coming here is an experience.
There is a strong sense of welcoming;
It has a warmth and a generous spirit.
The entry is quiet—modest. Inside, it is wonderfully open and extends to the back 3.7 acres and the adjoining 30 acre natural preserve.

Rustoleum on plywood, 48 x 48”, Elizabethtown College, 2012 Here, to get more sustained burn, I wanted to pre-‘soak’ a board with heavy drips and globs of paint; the shifting wind ‘moved’ and pushed the paint. Who was I to interfere with that!!!

I am profoundly involved in creating spaces of still and quiet…places of reflection and contemplation…so that they ask me –and the viewer—to pause and listen to the quiet so that we can make sense of ourselves….
I have always searched for the ‘beginnings’. What are the earliest sources of ideas? I am fundamentally connected to deep geologic time…the bedrock.
