In 1968 I began to incorporate water gilding into my egg tempera paintings and sculptures.  From 1970 to 1997 most of my art work centered around these two mediums.  Since 1998, I have been focusing primarily with the gilded surface, both water and oil gilding.  I am currently experimenting with, and abstracting this classic and historic medium.
