About Me

I came to making art rather late in life, after having wanting to pursue it for far too long. I started as a way to express some powerful emotions in a healthy and sustainable way....I had been working on a project on sustainable living at the time. A few weeks later I took my first art class and the following year a friend took me to see the documentary, Gerhard Richter Painting and my life changed in the course of watching that film. I had returned from living in Germany just four years earlier and I was captivated from the moment the movie began.

I love beauty in all its forms and I have been an activist for many decades and both passions inform my work. How to merge beauty and the fight against injustice is often how I approach a new work, but sometimes one will win out. To find balance is not always an easy task. I am inspired to truly explore if art can change the world, one person at a time.

I now spend my time in Los Angeles and Santa Fe, NM (as often as I can) and I spend two months on retreat every year. It's been a long and winding road and I can now say, worth every moment since I finally made it to making art.
