I am moved to make art in order to share some of the beauty I see around me. Beauty, not just in the traditionally beautiful such as sunsets and mountains, but beauty found in random compositions which the human eye imposes — juxtapositions of colors, shapes and lines. To me great paintings are akin to […]

I am drawn to painting desserts for their enticing textures, shapes, and colors that seduce you with mouth-watering rewards. However, since I can’t eat sweets like I used to, my personal relationship with food and decadent treats has evolved. Now I appreciate them more as a visual feast for the eyes and the nostalgia they […]

“If I create from the heart, nearly everything works; if from the head, almost nothing.” Marc Chagall I took a 34 year break from art as I pursued a successful career as a corporate executive. I returned to painting in 2010. As I picked up my paintbrushes again, I realized that my art was not […]

I love to paint. I am drawn irresistibly to the landscape, to its forms and colors and particularly its light, which varies so dramatically throughout the day and throughout the seasons. Beauty is always an important consideration. I cannot paint a subject unless I see something beautiful in it, something that makes me grateful to […]

I am interested in visual subjects exploring authenticity and identity, feminism and destruction. I am curious about the constructs of creativity in bilingual cultures and the limits of language in different cultures. I am disturbed by injustice, and my response was to create a depiction of language’s potential ambiguities. Language is power, and lack of […]

I love to work in many media and genres, often more than one at the same time. The process of making absorbs me. The feel of paper, paint, pencil and brush delights me. I feel lucky that my occupation is work and play at the same time. I recently published “The Migraine Book”, a collection […]

Artist Statement • Broken Threads A sewing station in a textile mill sits abandoned but intact, as if the worker walked out mid-shift and never returned. You can picture her sitting there; you can see the color choices she made in gathering her work materials. Christmas decorations sit idly on a desk as though waiting […]

When I look through the lens and see the world, I strive to make work that leaves the viewer looking at something familiar but from a new angle, light, or perspective. Every commission, every street corner, every event present new possibilities. On the RiverArts Studio Tour, I will be featuring two series: Corps de Clone—Action […]

 My world is of earth and spirit. Nature is at once a deep source of inspiration, and a comforting healer. More than anything, the quality of light which radiates from and about the subject is what I am moved to capture. I try to express the essence – the spirit of a place, a person, […]
