About

I am curious, a traveler, an artist, photographer and filmmaker. My work is infused with my experience and environment. Working in series, occasionally I paint stylized imagery of reality, but much of the work is a more amorphous world of color and texture, also inspired by nature -- particularly ocean, sky and clouds. I like to look at things from different perspectives, like two sides of a coin. In photographs I like both sharp still images but also still images that move and blur.

In college I went on to study Cultural Anthropology, which further developed my curiosity about people and cultures, their myths and religions. All of these influences and experiences are embedded in my psyche and inform my creative process.

         

Combined with the mythology of the Amazon tribes, my studies of Indian myths and religions took me on a journey of another kind, into space, the cosmos, cycles of creation and the relationship between heaven and earth. These are recurring themes in my work.


Inspiration

I am a traveler, a dreamer, an explorer, and a thinker. A lot of my creativity derives from the landscapes, seascapes and skyscapes of places where I've traveled and lived. The ocean, the sky and forms in the landscape inspire me, and the Mediterranean is a uncorks my imagination. At times my work is a stylized interpretation of reality but often it appears abstract. But, while my imagery may look abstract, for me there is always an underlying concept or story, or a transition of the subject from one form into another.

The ocean is an integral part of me. I live in a world of blue. In Taos, the sky is my ocean and the clouds my waves.


Techniques

Currently most of my work is in oil. Painting in oil, the substrate has a tremendous effect on my process. In the past I worked with watercolors and metallic gouache on textured rice papers. Using a grid and modulating colors like musical chords, the images were stylized interpretations of nature. The horizontal grid evolved into the square grid of tiles, gold leaf, and structure for abstract paintings.

I tend to work in series of three to ten pieces, and in various media. A series often begins with photography that inspires thought and imagination. Each medium inspires new ideas that I translate from one to another.



career highlights

My career in art has been a creative, eclectic and interesting journey. The early years of my career were highlighted by working with consultants and art dealers who exhibited my work internationally and commission-ed me to create large bodies of work for private residences, offices, airports, hospitals and hospitality venues. The work was both representational and abstract, created on various media from watercolor to oil, monotypes and tiles.

The South Bay Focus exhibition at the Torrance Art Museum was one of my favorite exhibits because the curator chose work with an eye to the artists' points of view. It was beautiful and thought provoking.
