EDUCATION

                         MFA, Claremont Graduate University, Claremont, California

                            painting and design

                         PHD. New York University, New York, 

                            Interdisciplinary Program: creative art, science, contemporary art history

                                                                     SPECIALIZATION

                          Bridging the connections between mathematics and art. Natural forms have                                the beauty of a mathematical formal order. They are patterns, structures

                          and relationships. These can be seen in my paintings, sculptures, drawings and

                          publications.
