I paint the figure, landscape, still life and all combined. I paint with oil, watercolor an pastel. I especially enjoy painting and drawing the figure from life using a variety of media. I also sculpt and cast in bronze.
I grew up in Westwood and moved to N. CA when I went to UC Berkeley. My parents owned a restaurant in Hollywood on Vine St. for 35 years. My father put my 4 sisters, brother and me in movies as soon as we could walk. My three older sisters were a singing and dancing trio until they got married and had families. They cut records, entertained the troops and won washing machines on amateur hours. I've written a memoir about those years, several short stories and countless poems. I got an MA in art and another in Art Therapy. I worked as an Art Therapist in the Bay Area for many years while I made art. I paint and sketch the figure, face, landscape, still life and all combined. I use w/c, oil, pastel, ink and multimedia. I also sculpt the figure and head and have cast some in bronze. Please check out my website and click on Art in the Barn to see a short film about my exhibit of life-size female figures. Feel free to contact me for announcements of future shows.
