Who said getting older was something to dread?! Not me! Every day is a gift and I love gifts.

I love my new eyes now that I'm an artist. It was a fairly long, winding, sometimes jagged road to finally figure that out. And what an amazing world it is! Even the terrible stuff all around us has its own sort of beauty. Goya, de Kooning, Lucien Freud, Picasso, Marlene Dumas, Jenny Saville manifest(ed) terrible beauty.

While I don't have a studio at the moment due to a move from one city to another, I'm working on a limited basis. Those working moments are the joy of my life. Currently a class in Encaustic Painting is filling my artistic idea machine.

Expressing my feelings and observations is what I try to do through drawing, painting and mixed media. What's the use of being an artist without interpreting the world?


foreign films, writing stories, kissing, excellent wine, marathon reading sessions, eating local seasonal food, planning vacations, any English person making me tea, any moment I spend in europe, losing track of time and space in front of a piece I'm working on, walking around Seattle, the excitement and energy and hope around Obama. Ohhhh the possibilities if we keep the momentum...
