About The Artist
These paintings and, Pastels reflect my interest in both still life, and abstraction. For these compositions I played at the edge of abstraction. Working to stay close to the point at which color, line, and form move past recognition. There was also the desire to fill my studio with delightful objects and cheerful colors during the pandemic. Flowers are an endless source of joy.
Included in the gallery are some examples of my recent approach to flowers. The new works are mixed media collage. They take as their inspiration vintage comic books from the early 1960’s. Some of the books are ‘Archie and Veronica’, ‘Richie Rich’, ‘True Romance’, ‘ Pinocchio’. Here while the subject is still flowers there is a chance to look below the surface for some nostalgia.
I’VE BEEN PAINTING,TEACHING,AND, CURATING IN MARIN FOR THIRTY YEARS. I LOVE WHAT I DO, AND FEEL VERY LUCKY TO BE ABLE TO PURSUE THIS LIFE OF CREATIVITY.
