Mapping
the Silence: Africa, Sicily, and Britain

Home | Scheduled Exhibitions | Resume | Contact


My father fought in the European theater during W.W.II, fighting in Africa, Sicily, and Britain. My mother was a teenager during the bombing of Britain. My parents didn't talk much about the war when I was growing up, as many of their generation did not. This series of paintings are influenced by historical research and first hand accounts of the war by those who were there, and an attempt to trace my father’s steps to learn more about his life as a soldier.
