Conversation with The Artist: Saturday February 29 at 2pm (Leap Year!)
I am so thrilled to share that my work is now represented in the permanent collection at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). “blossom cluster of delight” has just been acquired by the Museum. It is painted with Acrylic Ink on Mylar (Grafix Drafting Film) and mounted on a custom white aluminum frame, 30 x 42 inches, 2016.
blossom cluster of delight – juxtaposed patterns of interlace, fluid water and boundaries, interlocking arabesques, braiding, mysteries, dynamic movement & stillness. the art of ornamentation and the poetic use of ambiguous space; perceptual shifts of figure & ground. The joy of looking and getting lost, sensuous and odd color. The still-point of the six-pointed star. Opacities & transparencies. Matte & shiny surfaces. Blown away roof style. Interconnection of all things, knots, sworls of energy, networks and webs.
I am a 2nd generation Los Angeleno and have been visiting LACMA since I was a teenager. I live 5 minutes away by car, and visit and know parts of the permanent collection intimately. So it is particularly fulfilling to have my work be part of this museum collection!

Greetings! Well, it has been over a month since I returned with my family from my Art Inspiration & Research Trip to Southern Spain & Morocco. And what can I say? It was even more magnificent and grand an adventure than expected. Every day was rich and full in so many inexplicable ways that I almost can’t write about it. Words are so inadequate. I am processing it and will be doing so for quite a long while. Since being home to begin, I have been painting and working with a Star of David pattern in blue found at the Lazama Synagogue in Marrakech. Continue reading →
Well it’s here, it’s happening. It is with deepest gratitude to my sponsors & supporters that my artistic dream is funded and is coming true!! I thank each one of them for deeply believing in me and my value as an artist, bringing my visions into the world. This is really beyond priceless to me.
It was October 1991 since the one & only time I went to the Alhambra Palace – I am so excited to return! It had a profound effect on me as a young artist. Above are pictures of me then from that European trip where I also studied art at an International Program in Italy (doing figure drawings and abstract paintings) then traveled through Europe, backpacking for 4 months.
