So Happy to have been included in this years show put on by the Friends of Redondo Beach. Thank you for including me.

Soft Sculpture Installation: “In-Between” — We live our lives in the in-between… birth to death; morning to night; breath to breath; thought to thought not really aware of the power it holds. Time enters and leaves a door open for that “something” to happen and we live, we see, we observe, we choose, and change… in the “in-between” of the “what-is”.

We find ourselves literally squishing “stuff” into that time opening, sometimes to over-flowing into over-whelm. Continue reading

Kimono’s Solo Show

mkimono-small “Kimono”

There’s really nothing special about the kimono…or so “they” say — except for the art that is displayed. It speaks to a magic of reference, structure, location, and time — without which the article is unknown, unseen, uncommitted, and unending. So you might ask, “What’s wrong with that… it sounds pretty free to me?” But that is not the  purpose or promise of the Kimono’s magical presence.
Perfection is it’s mystery, for if it is not—Why the Geisha?

“Hot 10” Show at Beyond Baroque

We The People: (PODs) installation

Near Yet So Far from Here! PODs The Crowd Dynamic #1 — Inclusion/Exclusion/Socialization PODs represent people within the crowd dynamic — that don’t look like people. They are shapes that resemble in the simplest form a person, body, the being not being. They just are. This is an episode in their Journey. Diversity of color and shape bring the PODs to life, they mingle, they overlap, they share their energy and create a community. At this point they are on the same “path” together, be it a staircase or other. The black and white paintings represent an“otherness”, outsiders. People who are not yet within the space the colorful crowd occupies. This group, crowd, have a different set of experiences as with them there is a constant change of perspective, inclusion, exclusion, acceptance in the socialization of crowd.

Our Ever Changing World ~ Through the Eyes of Artists — Couples and Collaborations

Just how DO Artists live together? Is it a collaboration or…

I like thinking that artists are different. I noticed that artists work to bring something that is hidden into light. That their way of seeing and being in our world opens us to new ways of acting and thinking. Their different perspectives help to bring about change. Continue reading

Screen shot 2015-01-05 at 7.11.03 PMI am very pleased to have made the cut for a review on Artvetting.com and by Isaac Lyles. Thank you for your time and kind words of insight and encouragement.

2014 started out for me with recovering from an accident… and two new series developed within two days of the hit.
