Biography



 
The visual art experience for me is a stimulating flux of sensations, meanings, and emotions. The non-objective, the abstract, and the representational are complementary, utilizing distinct but overlapping languages. We interpret art to a content in ourselves.
 
Except for pencil drawing activity in my youth, a fuller art experience was initiated while I was engaged in UCLA graduate studies in biochemistry. I enrolled in art studio classes, a decision pivotal in setting new direction for my life. Through subsequent years I attended art classes in adult education and community colleges, enrolled for a time at the Otis Art Institute of Los Angeles County (subsequently Otis-Parsons in Los Angeles) and attended sessions privately taught by instructors from Art Center in Pasadena.  
 
I am retired from a career as a science professional.

My art includes drawing, painting, printmaking, collage, and photography.  Other pursuits include the writing of poetry, story, and drama. I've lived in Chicago, Los Angeles; and Seattle since 1988.
