The excitement and wonder of art making drive my work as much now as they did when I was a child. I simply love to make things. I am a visual artist and writer (primarily poetry), a therapist in private practice, and (for the past 25 years) a teacher in Southern California universities. In these endeavors, in my daily life, and in the pools of memory that delight and haunt experience, I find the inspiration for the works you’ll see in my gallery.
My artwork comes from many different interests but I am particularly drawn to people, urban life, and the areas inside us where the heart and the mind merge. I’m drawn to human tenderness and goodwill. I love color, lines, shape, and intersections between digital and handmade art. My paintings often start from photographs or digital work that is rendered in oil or acrylic or both and pieces started on canvas are frequently figured digitally and reworked, in a process of back and forth between the digital and the real.
My visual artwork has been on display at Beyond the Lines Gallery (at Bergamot Station), Art Share L.A., Groundwork Coffee, Laemmle’s movie theaters and numerous other locations. I’ve had poetry in the Mark Rothko Retrospective at the Tate Modern Museum in London. In case you might be interested, here’s a feature on my work in Live Encounters, regarding a series of gouache collage pieces I did, called First Person Plural.
I am exploring visual art making processes all the time and constantly making new work. I hope you’ll join me in this adventure and consider yourself a friend!
