I am a lifelong resident of the Chicago area, now living in St. Charles. My family immigrated for Poland shortly after World War II, my father worked as a metal spinner, an incredible craftsman. I was the first college graduate in my family, graduating from the University of Illinois Chicago, College of Architecture. In the 1970’s I pioneered digital graphic applications in the architectural office of Murphy/Jahn in Chicago for eight years under design partners Gene Summers and Helmut Jahn. After leaving Murphy/Jahn I started a computer consulting firm and began teaching digital design applications.
Over the last fifteen years, I have been able to apply my education and work experience to my artwork. My research into digital methods in the disciplines of science, mathematics, architecture, art, and technology is published and presented internationally in the form of prints, web pieces, sculptural, and architectural studies presented in a body of work spanning over one hundred exhibitions and thirty-seven conference papers.
Highlights of my digital artwork include SIGGRAPH 2001 Art Gallery and its International Traveling Art Show, the SIGGRAPH 2003 Art Gallery, the 2004 Rockford Midwestern Exhibition, the Chicago ArtFutura Exhibition of American Art 2005 and 2006, and the Chicago Sculpture International’s 2006, 2008,and 2010 Biennials; the Chicago ArtLoop Open 2010. The Rockford and ArtFutura exhibits were curated by James Rondeau of the Art Institute of Chicago.
