Building on my appearance in ArtPrize 2012, I’m returning this year for the initial viewing of my "Birds of a Feather" trilogy of objets d’art made from recycled /repurposed file folders (see attached photos). In 2012 I was the oldest invited artist. I believe I may improve on that this year, since I’m now 97! I started sculpting in 2008. My art has been exhibited at several venues in the last few years including The Alden B. Dow Art & Science Museum, Janice Charach Gallery, The Huron Valley Council of the Arts, and The University of Michigan Gifts of Art. I am currently Vice President and Treasurer of the respected Michigan Carls Foundation (conservation of land and children’s welfare, http://carlsfdn.org/) and a past member of The Detroit Science Center Board of Trustees. I retired as a Vice President of Numatics, Inc. at 78. I am a Michigan licensed Professional Engineer, certified Manufacturing Engineer, and an inductee into the 2019 inaugural class of the International Fluid Power Society Hall of Fame. I obtained my B. Mech. Eng. degree from The City College of New York and M. Sc. from Columbia University. I served as a regional judge for 6 years for The International First® Robotics Competitions. https://www.firstinspires.org/ . I volunteered and was honorably discharged after 3 years from the Army Corps of Engineers, serving in both European and Pacific theaters during World War II.
