I'm a second gen Los Angeles native educated in art, writing and dance at UCLA and UC Berkeley. Throughout the 1970's I also had the good fortune of being a full-time student of Tibetan Buddhist teacher, Chögyam Trungpa, Rinpoche.

Now that I'm a semi-retired copywriter, broadcast producer and creative director, I've returned to my first passion -- art. I'm shooting pictures (have been since I was eleven), and love mixing media for collage.

 

In my visual art, personal photos goose my imagination. Stuff gets Photo-shopped, layered with paint, and attacked by random textures. Sometimes pen and ink crash the party.

 

First thought best thought guides me and instinct trumps concept. I like to think that my work celebrates what's spiritual in the mundane. And occasionally makes a socio-political statement or two.
