About The Artist
The two primary components of my art are autobiographical and observational. On the one hand, I source imagery from various aspects of myself and my history such as experience in the world of advertising, cross-cultural encounters and past travels, both real and imaginary. On the other, I incorporate impressions of daily life such as the chaos of urban density and din, technology’s disorienting impact on our senses and random details, graphics and things momentarily noticed in passing. Painting with acrylic on wood panels, the focus is on abstraction and how the elements of color, pattern, shape and texture create visual surprise when presented in unexpected combinations.
I began drawing and painting at a young age. Inspired by sixties concert posters, album covers and pop art, I studied Illustration and Advertising Design at Northern Arizona University and Art Center. After college, I pursued a 30+ year career in San Francisco as an art director/creative director. In 2011, a weeklong workshop at Esalen reignited my first love of making art. My studio is located in the ICB art building in Sausalito.
