I started drawing when I was about three years old and my father would bring home waste paper from work. My current work is on canvas or paper and incorporates acrylic paint, dry media such as graphite or chalk, parts of photographs taken by me, and other collage elements. The work is abstract and figurative and sometimes involves serial interpretations of a given theme. The themes are wide-ranging and can include Smokey Robinson and the afternoon of a faun, the Cabo Verde Islands, and downward dogs.
I do not have a degree in art but took a number of classes while in college. I taught myself intaglio printmaking and have had my work in numerous exhibits, galleries, and private collections in the United States and Europe. My work was featured in the art issue of Sand Hill Review in 2012. I am also an art critic writing a blog as such for the Branner-Spangenberg Gallery in Redwood City.
